How do you deal with pain?
How do you deal with heartache?
How do you deal with situations that hurt you?
In the past, I have hurt myself
I used to crave the pain,
That covered up the heartache I did not want to face.
I thought that by getting piercings,
In addition, doing things to cover up my pain,
Would make my life easier.
I did not see that it just made it worse,
That is was just starting a fire
That the flames would grow
Until I could not stand the heat any longer.
I had to stop the chain reaction,
I had to deal with each situation,
I had to learn,
I had to beat the flames down,
Until they were, finally out.
It is easy to face the pain in my heart
Before it takes control.
No, but I know I have to.
I cannot deal with the waves of pain
That I will create if I do not,
I will stand tall and say
Bring it on, you will not beat me,
I will remain on top
No matter what.
