Inside, a poem written by Brad Osborne at



written by: Brad Osborne


The me I hide
The me inside
A little boy
A broken toy

What I exude
Shows not the feud
Struggles within
Remain hidden

The truth belied
Not seen outside
Not sure the me
For them to see

If opened once
It holds no bunce
The flood I fear
May then appear

The truth laid bare
So all can stare
Now in their sight
My private plight

This broken toy
This little boy
The me inside
The me I hide
