Who hasn't?


Who has never experienced a moment of doubt?
A moment of pain.
When people find out your hidden flaws,
You wish no one knew your name.
You stay away from, avoid certain places,
Shunning the people who know you well.
Your past cause you embarrassment, we've all done things we'd rather not tell
Anyone else about, because we are shamed.
Having a secret lover that you want no one to know about.
Not handling home life well, but pretending you're a boy scout.
Mistreating those closest to us, while pretending to be nice.
Giving lip service to living well, but thinking about ending your life.
We've all got secrets, things we don't tell.
We've lived with them for so long, in truth it's a living HELL.
But what can you do? Stop living? Give in?
No you keep on living and never give up.
Some days things look up.
Some days are gloomy. Hold on, try harder, and better days somewhere is looming.
I don't know what to say.
I don't know how to feel.
But, I'll keep on trying to survive.
For life, I have strong will.
Sometimes I am ashamed and I feel so alone.
Sometimes I find myself crying in a small room in my home.
But, I trudge on each day, trying to see something new.
Hold your head up.
Keep trying. It will be alright soon.
Who has never experienced a moment of doubt?
A moment of pain.
When people find out your hidden flaws,
But look closely and you might see within you are NO flaws at all.
