Damaged Goods

By 27th November 2010December 9th, 2019No Comments

Battered and bruised
Kicked from pillar to post
Tired, hurt and used
Memories scare me the most

Hiding the pain, sometimes for years
Not talking although I know I should
Taught from day one to disguise all my fears
I’ve been living my life as damaged goods

Now the time has come when I just have to say
‘Enough is enough’ and reach out a hand
They surely must see I can’t continue this way
I’m not a machine, I’m only a man

The ghosts in my head may never all go
But I want just for once a normal life
To look in the mirror and always to know
I fought it and beat it for my kids and my wife
