Bottle It Up

Bandage up the hurt

Lock away the pain

Smush it all into the back of your brain

And just get through the rest of the day

Later you can cry

And unwrap the scars

You can look at yourself in the mirror

But don’t forget to tell yourself how beautiful you are

I know how it feels

I know how it is

I know whats it like

I understand this

And I know they don’t

But guess what? I do

Follow in my footsteps

This life is what we will get through

And someday

Youll see

They were wrong

All of them

You are perfect to me
