I got the idea for this poem from Bullet Proof by falling rain  

I hurt now and then
But I hide it well
Everyone says
My heart is made of ice
That I feel no pain
I've been hurt so bad that
Small things don't matter
Words don't tear me down
But I'm not bullet proof

Building these walls
Around my heart
That keep everyone out
Everyone says
I am the strongest
Person they know
But I'm crumbling
And they don't understand
I am only human
I can only take so much
I'm not bullet proof

So much hurt
So much pain
These walls come
Tumbling down
Revealing the hurt and pain
I've hidden for so long
The anger released
Burning up my energy
Every word that ever cut me
Every pain I've ever felt
Blur my vision
And run down my face
Leaving a trail of unhappiness
I'm not bullet proof

Past sorrows felt
New ones to come
I can't hold on
I'm loosing myself
I can't take all this pain
All this hurt
I'm not bullet proof

If you don't like something,
Change it...
If you can't change it,
Change the way you think about it
