For Sanities Sake...


The night breeze taunts my pitiful pleas
An insane child trying to grasp sanities keys  
Unlocking the chambers of my now adult mind
Will the psychiatrist believe the horrors he finds
 
He can only discover what I’m willing to share
Others sought the truth pretending to care
A child’s voice screams from deep inside
Please leave me in darkness, allow me to hide
 
No one will believe what happened that night
Keep the secret do not force me into the light
Perhaps I am crazy listening to this child’s voice
Telling my story I can see I made the wrong choice
 
Altering my course I allow the child to remain hidden
Speaking of the horrors that are not forbidden
Telling of my parent’s death, my eyes start to tear
The psychiatrist tells me I need to face my fear
 
Perhaps he is right I cannot go on this way
Struggling with the darkness praying for the next day
Back to where I first met the demons face to face
A fear the child in me must be forced to embrace
