The Pain She Hid Forever


Sadness fille her heart
As tears fill her eyes
The pain that she feels
She can no longer disguise

For too many years
The pain was locked inside
Even from herself
She tried to make it hide

But the pain got to be too much
No longer could she conceal
That when she was a little girl
Her childhood her father did steal

He took away her innocence
Her younger years destroyed
She lived her childhood
But the years she did not enjoy

Now she stands before him
As he's being laid to rest
For him she feels no sorrow
She's lived her life depressed

Because of him she's never trusted
The touch of any man
She believes that
She knows she never can

She's always heard it said
That it shouldn't hurt to be a child
Now looking back to her younger years
She now realizes, never once had she smiled
