"Who Understands?" by M

Lost in this aloneness,
Who understands this world within?
Yes, this life’s secret shared,
Ah, they care but do they really understand?
Who knows what he has done
To destroy this life and make me seem so weak.

Who understands that my heart is breaking?
Who understands this prison within,
Where so many gates await to be opened.
Who understands the fear of Now?
For too much pain comes in.

Who understands the shame felt?
In all this filth and years of abuse.
Who understands that Abuse is Death
For life has been taken from this child within.
Who understands the anger now felt
At him who has done all this.

Who understands the confusion within?
Who can give the answers to all this ?
Who Understands?
