Where do I belong in this world so grand?
I feel like I am drowning in a sea of quick sand,
I do not think like you do so that makes me wrong,
Is it a must to agree and just follow along?
Can I not be myself and my mind freely speak?
Why does my opinion to you always seem weak?
Is it me who is struggling outside looking in?
Or are you the intruder waiting for me to begin?
The road has become rocky and my boots I have left behind,
I feel the need to express what is constantly on my mind,
I feel an abyss growing between our two hearts,
Because of the forbidden undesired parts,
You want me, but only as you see fit,
Until I can comply, on the sidelines I should sit.
Well I am telling you I am tired, I do not wish to change,
I want to be me, to be another feels impossibly strange.
Do I belong here or maybe I should go?
Do you want me as I am, if not please just let me know?
I am who you see, and nothing else will I be,
This is all that you get, this that you see.
So you decide now, and here I will wait,
Be forewarned though, decide before it is too late.Advertisements
Good morning my friends. Today I woke up with the urge to let the words flow as they would. Following is what was waking me up this morning, trying to escape my brain. I hope you enjoy this bit of poetry. Have a wonderful day and a marvelous weekend all. Remember to inspire to be inspired.
If I were to die tomorrow, would anybody care?
If they were to have a funeral, would anyone be there?
If I pleaded for mercy, would you hear my feeble cries?
Would you comfort me and hold me, or simply tell me lies?
Would you show me the sunset and treasures that shine within?
Or would you only show me sorrow, and demonstrate my sin?
My sin alone is loving you, and letting you take hold,
Of a heart that is fragile, that for other pleasures you have sold.
I tread the waters slowly, hoping the crest will never break.
I implore you to see me, and that pity on me you will take.
That you will free me from this binding and mercy on me show.
That my fate you will release and my spirit shall be let go.
I am sending inspirational thoughts to everyone today and hoping that you will have the best weekend possible. Grab a hold of your dreams and make them reality my friends.
