Silent Faith

My trembling hands
Don't want to come together

I refuse to feel weakness
Oppress the confessor

I will defy the defeat
Of my body and mind

And my tears will freeze
So I...will never cry

-
I was once told
That I have to be strong
But a child can never grow old
When reminded that every action is wrong

I didn't need to know
That strength was everything
I would have given up a long time ago
Because that is my hollowed instinct

Take back every single breath / Take back those moments I lived
I am not some stepping stone / I am not meant to have a torn soul

You can only push so much / I can choose to give up
You're the only one who's the judge / I can define who's the fraud


I once believed
That resolve was protection
But all forms of relief abandoned me
I crumbled upon the footholds of absolution

I never knew
Of exile or despair
Or what has gotten me through
To the point where I need to disappear

-
My broken bones weep
Holding up the weight of the world

Through the bottled up tears I can still see
As I take another wrong step forward

I will wear a mask of pride
In front of you- I will not break

As I bathe in this false light
I...dare not speak of my silent faith
A piece can forever be broken
But the will to exist cannot be easily taken

Thank you. Lol, I was trying my best to make it so it doesn't read as "angry" but it was hard to come out of that. In a way I guess it comes off that way in a sense. I tried to layer the emotions. I'm so glad you liked it though. <3
