Beautiful Disaster

Clothed in the scars from my past

I am a beautiful disaster

The whirlwinds inside my head 

Making it hard to think straight

You say i should forget

You say I should forgive

Why? 

Why should I hide away my feelings like a bank robber hides behind a mask?

Robbing me of the right to express my pain

Forcing me into these chains of oppression

I am a Beautiful disaster

I scream and no one hears me because you have silenced my right to voice my anger

You've backed me into a corner and stripped me of my pride

Stripped me of my dignity

Forced me into the box that you deem appropriate to hide me away from the world

I am a beautiful disaster 

And you are my hurricane

I lay in your aftermath 

A broken shell of a person that the world will never see

        "Robbing me of the right to express my pain

        Forcing me into these chains of oppression

        I am a Beautiful disaster"
