Why is it that I turn away?
What is it that I cannot say?
The pain is real, it has such strength
To avoid it I go to any length
And yet I know that I must face
This nemesis that steals my grace
For that part deep down within
That little boy who hates my sin
Not with fists, nor angry words
But with silence I cause such hurt
I back away, look down in shame
For I know I've failed again
