You may not know, care, or understand me.
All I ask is that you look and try to see
That I have feelings, and I feel pain.
I've nothing to lose and everything to gain
By stating the grounds on which I stand.
Boldly pronouncing the anger too often banned
Because of the fear of hurting someone else,
Never giving a thought to the hurt in myself.
You've pushed me away without a second thought,
And I letting you as I should not.
Here I go lashing out my tongue
Feeling as though I have won.
Maybe you understand me better,
Maybe you don't even care,
I've stated, with all my Irish pride,
The true feelings I've held deep inside.
