If I was on a date, and I felt uncomfortable Would you expect me to stay? If I had a condition, and the treatment was iffy
My soul is dying, you can tell by my eyes My heart is aching, but that should come as no surprise I see myself in the mirror, but I don't look the same
Fracture the factions in your mind Leave society’s teachings behind Seek the truth and see what you find Know an eye for an eye leaves everyone blind
Some things you can't understand Until you want to understand And are willing to understand them Shift is difficult Learning nothing is what it seems
The way that I was raised Was a blessing and a curse I wasn’t really praised, But more often I got cursed I was told I’d never be anything,
I remember feeling confused as a child when noticing the way people felt, versus how they behaved. It was rare that the two actually reflected one another. For me, it was more like if you expressed a feeling--any feeling--there would likely be hell to pay. If you were cowering in fear, small and quiet, you were safer, but not immune. I’m not trying to convince anyone of how bad it was because I lived it, and even I struggle with fully accepting it. Though some may be able to relate, no one else knows what it felt like being in my body. Seeing what I saw, feeling what I felt, hearing what I heard, living how I lived. Cause that's the thing, life is an experience that is different for every person, even if multiple people share the same exact circumstance. If I have pulled you into this truthful tale, then I have successfully shared my creative outlet with you. I’m a storyteller, and while I do enjoy writing of all sorts, I am a poet at heart.
Please don't take my dreams away Please don't make me give up I know that I'll be someone, someday Will you please just let me grow up?!
