If Only

If Only


If all the world

could only see 

all the thing throw

my own eyes

they would have to cry,


how much beauty

is deep within

I write out my pains

and I let it rain,


I’m not as bad

as people think

I write dark

but my life is for Light,


If only my readers

could only understand

you all me the world to me

while you read my own

blood stain ink,
