Let Me Be Me

Let me go to where my heart can feel,

Where a moment is not something I must steal,

Lead me to one who shows me they care,

One I can sense will always be there,

I feel lost in a world where my mind is not free,

Where I will never be allowed to truly be me,

Why does it  hurt so much, if it is always the same,

They all promise the world, always using love’s name,

This is never the case, or maybe it’s just me,

Am I the problem here that I cannot see?

I am never enough, or I always need to change,

But choosing one to make them different, to me just seems strange,

Why profess to love one and ask them to be who they are not,

Did you never love who they were, or have you simply forgot?

The little things that make me uniquely me,

Did they slip your mind, or did you choose not to see?

The pain you cause me, I swallow and hide,

Waiting for the end of this roller coaster ride,

You say the words I desperately need to hear,

While degrading the person and leaving only fear,

Time alone will decide if I weather the pain,

But the silent indifference is making me insane,

Please love me for who I am and for what you can see,

Not for who you can make me, or wish I would be.
