Free. Day after day we go through life, Pay no heed to the pain around us. Day after day we drown in our own work, Not paying attention to the sorrow Within us. As if it didn’t hurt enough to Be alone. As if it didn’t mean enough to See divorce. As if it isn’t enough to Hurt everyday. Discrimination plagues us all. To be told you’re not legitimate, you’re not Special. That’s all I wanted to be called- Special. To come home after a whole day, And find yourself lying alone. To wish you were next to someone- Anyone. Anyone. I’d give the world for someone to Lift me. Lift me from this. Love me. Why won’t you love me? Empty questions for empty answers I sow my own resolve. Patience kills my mind while I wait every waking day For him to wrap his arms Around me. Love me. Alone. That’s how my life will play out. Trembling at night ;wishing, imagining A life. A life without hurt. Where the hurt are happy. Bliss in the yes of those who’ve suffered. Empty questions for empty answers. That’s how this world works. No more questions. No more answers. I’ll break free. This is Me.
