Childhood Lost

byDark_Destiny©

AUTHOR"S NOTE: there are many of you who know my best friend suffers from PTSD as a result of childhood abuse. I wrote this for him. Right afterwards, we cried together.

My laughter feels strange sometimes
A locked away heart now opened wide
I look to you with whom i can confide
Get in touch with the little boy inside

There's so many things i don't understand
What does it take to be a man?
Sometimes i just want to run and hide
Steal away the little boy inside

I've told you of all the burdens i've bared
Few and far are the people who've cared
Would you wipe away the tears i've cried?
Reassure the little boy inside?

I try to be strong for one more day
Look for answers when i don't know the way
Conquer the fears - get past the lies
And hold dear the little boy inside

Life is a puzzle impossible to try
But with love i know i can survive
Teach me to trust and to be alive
And learn to love the little boy inside...
