Self Content

To be alone
not with the
crowd

To stand alone
no one to hold

Not to cry over
the silence
not to complain
that everyone
runs away

Hard to be
silent when
your suppost
to be loud

Hard to be
warm when
your sitting
in the freezing
cold

To learn
to be calmly
insane

To have
temptation
and not
take it

I am not
to break hearts
but to do
nothing breaks
mine

Reasons are
wondered
questions
pondered

Acusations
screamed

Hard to
live alone

Hard to love
again

To hide my
love behind
shadows
of broken
pieces of
heart

To be
self content
I must stay

Alone I must be
this is not the
days for love

My act is not
together

My nose is not
clean

Hard to have
that look
again in your
eye

My mask lives
again

Alone I am
again

Self content
I am not
need no pity
I have to do
this on my own

I will love again...

'My mask lives again', I've been there... The last line comes from deep!
