The Me before

Scared of my voice, so I lay it flat

Scared of my words, so they come out chopped

Emotions lie useless within me

Unfeeling, unfriendly, trapped

By an old age script

Of harsh existence

And battle-scarred smile

A burden it has become

This survival

Scared for my heart

Pumped once

Never again

Scared for my mind

Gasping beneath the waters

Witty, funny, brash at times. I'm the big sister you never had, your female bestie and you know we can't hide the truth from you, us and our big mouths....but it's all done with love. FYI, you need me!
