I wanted to write something.
Something that told the world
just what feelings might say-
yet nothing comes out.
If I let my feelings
explore their hurts,
then words that I can't take back
might be spilled here...
and I don't want to do that.
So I take comfort with my courage,
to face my fears in daylight.
because there's nothing else to do-
but believe in myself, in my dreams.
I'm not the only one in the world with hurts,
with trials, with endless nights of loneliness and tears.
No I'm not the only one, but I carry my hope...
A Hope that keeps me going.
