I can take the pain

you can hit me over & over

& I will stand up tall

take it all

I learned early

to retreat inside

flat faced saying nothing

teeth clenched

so you can hit me again

& I will not move an inch

but this torture you do

words twisting

whistling the wind to come

sharper than knives

kill me deeper

than your fists kicks ever did

& you may not see the tears

falling inside

I know more than you ever will

when all you got to give is hurt

I can no longer linger here

but that doesn’t mean

your hurting isn’t on me

just that I will not let it show
