Guarded Hearts

2004 / 2005

the doubt, the guilt

the pain, the tears

building up in our hearts,

throughout the years.

Our hearts guarded and so scared

alone, independent,

let someone in, do you dare?

what if they hurt you? a voice says

says another - what if they love you instead?

that will never happen!

no, not all hope is dead.

So many thoughts, so confusing

which way do you go?

which voice is right?

how do you know?

the guilt of emotion

the doubt of ourselves

the pain of our past

the memories of tears on our shelves.

we remember the bad, it stays in us for so long

do you even remember some good?

or like the world, has everything gone wrong?
