have you ever tried to make somone see you
yet no matter how hard you try
you fail
they can’t see you
in my case,I’m dealing with someone who’s perspective
is controlled
Through thier own upbringing and how to be’s
I ask just look within yourself…can’t you see,don’t you know?
How different can we really be?
I’m stumped
I reach the point,where I ask what’s the point,why waste the energy?
You are a brick wall,I’ll never get through.
It’s been seven years
you still don’t know me
you label me
I wear your label
you see nothing else
I feel buried alive,I gasp for air and strength to keep my strength to dig myself out of this hole you have thrown me in…
I cry,yet you question why
You kill me
how I keep breathing
I guess there is still a fight in me
after all I’ve been through
I guess I just won’t give up.
It’s more about me then it is about you.
You see…it comes down to saving me.
I was lost for so many years,that when we met I thought I was found,
You drew my attention and I swallowed you whole
but now it’s too much to chew.
If you were only bubble gum
that didn’t loose it’s flavor
but you have…you won’t let me blow a bubble
you won’t let us grow
it is you…that can’t see us through.
Your makeup…is you
what you don’t see,is that people are not all like you.
You want me to be like you.
I’ll never be like you…..
I’m more…I may not be easy
I may be different,where people can’t help to stare
I’m real,can you say the same…aren’t you apart of this whole charade?
Mr. outgoing…nothing effects you,mr. happy pants.
you say it’s the way your supposed to be..that if I were grown up I’d know that.
What a sad fact…
I’m going to piss people off,because I’m true to myself…I don’t look like you,I don’t act like you…I can be me.
You are who’s afraid….you don’t even know your own name.
Go ahead and live for “them” Live as your told to. You just haven’t gotten here yet…
I’m at a place where I know there is no turning back…to thine own self be true…I have to fight for me. I have ti live. Although,I wish you could be here with me,there is only so much I can do. The best to you.
