What makes me me?

The demons I hide?

They won't go away.

God how I've tried.

Do they make me better,

Or make me worse?

Emotional scars,

Continual curse.

Have no regrets,

Life goes on.

But could trauma follow

Long after we're gone?

Live life well,

Avoid big mistakes.

I hope to be happy,

If thats all it takes?
