Can people really change?
I'm not sure they can,
How do you know the past has gone,
And left behind a reformed man?!

What if they haven't changed,
And the bad guy still remains?
A devil in an angel mask,
Can a person ever really change?!

They say the past is behind them;
That their future lies with you,
But gut instinct tells you otherwise,
And their actions do too.

How can you learn to trust again,
When the past still haunts your mind?
How can you tell the good from the bad,
When it's a mask they hide behind?!

I'm really not sure this time,
My head is filled with doubt,
I may look calm on the outside,
But inside I want to scream and shout!

I wish I could let go of it,
But experience taught me well,
The pain of being hurt before,
Is still my secret hell.

I just wish I could move forward,
But then every time I think It's working,
I get used, abused and knocked back down,
And another heartbreak seems to be lurking.
