What I do

What I do

I write my poems to keep me going
I sing my songs to keep me open
I draw those pictures to release stress
I use these tears to clean up the mess

I have this mask to hide it all
I've made this net to catch my fall
I think of dreams to give me choice
I speak the truth to free my voice

I look far up to find my light
I channel strength to help me fight
I look around to avoid all eyes
I don't tell secrets to avoid all lies

I push you away to keep you sane
I cloud my mind to forget the pain
I sew my scars to let me heal
I hold you close to help me feel

It's what I do from day to day
It's just my burden I chose this way
I never wanted you to fear my past
And in the end I hope I last.
