Keeping It Real

I bury these feelings

Deep in my heart

To keep my soul

From falling apart


Push the memories back

To the deepest part of my mind

To a place I hope

I will never again find


Emotions and memories

So painful to bare

But I know I will be safe

As long as they are there


I will stand tall and strong

I can’t dwell on the past

I must focus on the here and now

If I want my happiness to last


I’ve come so far

And fought hard to heal

But understand I’m still a little broken

So I’m keeping real.
