Open Book

I’m an open book
Turn the page and take a look
Inside you’ll find every emotion and feeling
The trauma and pain that still needs healing
The once frightened child
My thoughts gone wild
The tears that I’ve cried
All the times that I’ve tried
The love in my soul
Things I can’t control
Every page, every chapter
Will have you wonder
How life hasn’t snapped her

Every ounce completely

Her soul is so full,

She cannot control

That it pours from her eyes

That’s why she cries

She feels everything all the time

That is something she cannot hide

Emotions written on her face,

Heart on her sleeve,

Her feelings are not lies

She feels it all deeply

Every ounce completely

Some say she’s blessed

Some say she’s cursed

But apathy would be so much worse

Instead of sinking, she swims in her emotion

With each and every wave that comes from that ocean.
