True Thoughts
Author: Brandi


thought, thats what they are
thoughts embedded deeply in my mind as if they are sealed tightly in a jar
i cant let them out
the anger and pain they would cause would be unbearable
i wont let them out
sometimes i feel overcome w/anger
so much anger i can hardly see
i must swallow the thoughts down farther
at times my thoughts scare even myself
o what they would do to others if they were unleashed
no, i must keep them where they cannot be reached
sometimes i feel so helpless
like theres nothing i can do that would change the way things are,
like i must look at things from afar
but these thoughts are what give me my strength,
they are what strive me to do better;
to make a difference
they are my sense
my sense of life and the world around me
without them i would be lost
not free,
just not me
