I'm Like a Closed Book - Warren Jenkins

I’m like a closed book 

I struggle with emotions 

Turn me page by page 

Unlock my devotion 

Try to read me too fast and you won’t know me at all 

Read me too slow and you will hit a stone wall 

Honesty is trust. I don’t see it as a flaw 

A temper so fierce, I’m kind and then cruel 

But this is my shield, my weapon, and my tool 

The words on my pages cut deep to the core 

I will always love you forever and showing it is hard 

I hide behind this mask, my soul is terribly scarred 

The beginning is sad 

The middle is changing 

My end is unknown 

I will not leave you alone  

I will stay with you until the end of time
