So many colors make up our bright mind Only few can be seen by those outside Our colors are wonderful, sweet and kind Others of them are bitter, dark and hide Each is a person hidden within us Who want to be seen as real as we are Sometimes they cry out they scream and they cuss But they are nothing to fear, not by far They are heroes who saved us from our death Came forth from the back to stop the attack They don’t want to wait until our last breath Sure they have problems, but cut them some slack
Certain system members may be frightening to some, but they are heroes who kept us alive when we needed them.
It was faint before but I can hear them now They’re yelling and fighting to vow They had no choice originally in the matter But they’ve taken up their part and chatter They try to work in any way they can They take control and begin to plan Helping us all through methods of coping They give us a reason to continue hoping They know the dangers of the world first-hand Take up their place and together they stand They save us from continued grief They hide the pain and emerge brief No one will mess with us again
My alters and I have lived through unspeakable things together. We kept each other alive when there was nothing to save us.
