Lock It Away

I look in the mirror,
But I can’t see me,
All this time I’m starring,
Who can this be?
With eyes so dark,
And as black as the night sky,
Someone who hates you,
So you want to hide,
I pound my fists in the wall,
I can’t win,
I’ve been through it all,
But I can’t begin,
To understand,
Why I’m not okay,
So I lock it all,
I lock it all away,
My friends they plead,
Please just stay,
So I hold them close,
Tell them will be okay,
I watch them cry,
And I can’t help but cry to,
The only thing that stops me,
Is the face on you?
I pound my fists in the wall,
I can’t win,
I’ve been through it all,
But I can’t begin,
To understand,
Why I’m not okay,
So I lock it all,
I lock it all away,
It happens all the time,
But I don’t know,
What it is inside me,
That thing I can’t show,
All of the darkness,
I hide it all away,
I’m afraid if I show it,
You’ll run away.
