I know there is life behind those empty eyes of yours

I know the wish to heal sits silently underneath your scars

I know your heart will someday thaw

And I know how badly you want it to

I know the reasons why

Why you cut through your flesh like it was the enemy

Why you drink until you know nothing

Why you inhale that deadly smoke with a smile

And why you hurt yourself and everyone around you

I know it’s because you hate yourself and want everyone to hate you too

I know this because I am you.

But I know more too…

I know that you love and care so much sometimes it scares you

I know you cry with joy until your eyes sting

I know you laugh so hard that you clench your cramping sides

And I know you have dreams

Big ones

That need chasing

And I know you are fast enough to catch them

I know the life behind those empty eyes of yours is real and waiting

And I know you can set it free

I know this because I am you.
