Buried deep within me
Lay the pains from yesterdays.
Careful was I to keep them hidden,
Was that to live in a make-believe world I made for myself,
Or to make others believe that I am untouched by the prickles?

I visit those hidden tears,
To feel those pains once more,
To make me strong when I am fragile,
I go through the tough times within my mind, to realize
The strength within me, and come out as a winner wearing the hidden crown.
