The Truth Shall Keep You Chained

What you see is fake
This smile is not real
These words mean nothing
They are not how I feel

My true skin is covered
By powder and paint
These eyes hide my sadness
Show only hate

My scars are not
What you can see on my wrist
My scars lye internally
On my heart they do exist

I am more than just
A girl wandering the road
I am a bomb full of rage
Just waiting to explode

My anxiety has broken down
The life I once possessed
All of my foundation has crumbled
Left me hollow and depressed

I tell myself its just one step back
Two will come soon
But now that motivation is lost
Only three can heal this swoon

Prayer is always my last resort
And I have fallen on my knees
Our Father, who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy name

I will say this once
Only this time
I admit that I am wrong
I am sorry for the lies

For I and only I
Know the truth I save
Watch me as I fight to hold on
And carry it to my grave

The Truth Shall Keep You Chained
