People don’t notice because my pain is subtle
I’m silently waiting for someone to discover the pieces to my puzzle

I’d have to start from the beginning; I call it the corner stone
The corner piece to my puzzle on which my life has been built upon
This piece is my family that used to be united, used to stand strong
On the road of life pieces of what once was are now scattered along
Nothing more than memories, but now the reality
Is painful tendencies, and relapsing problems of legality
It’s sad to see, this broken catastrophe family
That never even seemed happy they just happened to BE

Next are the pieces to connect the corners, it’s the border and the border is me
And I’m broken in pieces cause its torture to see
From what once was to never again will be
It’s sickening; this whole thing is really getting to me

But there’s much more than that that lurks beneath the surface
Low self-esteem and thoughts of hurt that never surface but leave me feeling worthless
I’m nervous, cause people expect greatness that I feel I don’t deserve it’s
Hard for me to stand, I’m afraid of what’s to come but I yearn for my purpose
Sometimes I feel great hope, but it gets eclipsed by pain
Like a beautiful sunny day that gets eclipsed by the clouds and rain
But my sun is fleeting hope, and the clouds bring fear and the rain is shame
But there’s always peace in the end, I guess you could say it’s the rainbow that keeps me sane

Now there are the corners and the borders but for now we must proceed
Because there’s much more to say before the puzzle is complete
