Handwritten Heart

- I was searching through some old diaries and lyrics I wrote in years 8 and 9 (during my depressed stage) and I sounded stupid to myself. This is basically what I thought of myself.

Turning pages

Time when my heart was low

Remembering ages

Time flew by so slow

Messed up writing

Written in haste and fear

Remember fighting

To keep my mind clear

Running from the fears

Running from my tears

Running from the years

That held me down

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My handwritten heart

My handwritten heart

Could not show a single part

Of my handwritten heart

Handwritten heart

These written parts of me

Show how I used to be

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A broken pencil

To mark a broken page

My heart was singing

About a different age

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I had a reason

For feeling so blue

Is there a reason

For acting like you do?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Running from the fears

Running from my tears

Running from the years

That held me down

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My handwritten heart

My handwritten heart

Could not show a single part

Of my handwritten heart

Handwritten heart

These written parts of me

Show how I used to be

The End
