the guts to show my uglyness

the guts to show my uglyness

patch up your heart
act okay on the outside
pretend there's no pain
you have no reason to cry

shrug aside burdens
like they aren't there
just struggle under
the weight of your care

is it okay? is it?
may i show my pain?
"strength" aside, please,
tell me if it's okay!

God, give me Grace
all alone, i cannot be this
God, give me the guts
the guts to show my uglyness. 

The End
