I Don't Want to be a Stranger







Because of your bitterness

I am a stranger.

Because of my hurt

that makes me a stranger.


Your anger at the world

hurts me.

You allow yourself to be

bitter from the hurt.


You keep things hidden

so you stay mad at the world

which is a stranger to you.

Let the emotions go.


I don't want to be a stranger

because of your bitterness

causing me pain

from your anger.
