Valessa
Valessa, you wear your pain well
It's under your skin where no one can tell
Behind your eyes and skeleton frame
Wrapped like wisteria vines around your veins

Ahead of you lies handfuls of tears
Thousands of chances for fate to appear
New mornings to weaken the aching you feel
But never will it disappear

And know that sometimes your own blood
Can leave you with open wounds
Cut so deep they never stop bleeding
But you don't want to be the one who dies with a broken heart
That had a chance at healing

Your momma ain't around
You were your daddy's little mistake
The selfish can't keep promises they make
Now your left to find from where you came
With no road home no history to reclaim

But Valessa, don't let this world get to you
Happiness can be yours if you want it to
Because family is just another word for the ones you love
So open up your arms honey let me give you some

And know that sometimes your own blood
Can leave you with open wounds
Cut so deep they never stop bleeding
But you don't want to be the one who dies with a broken heart
That had a chance at healing
