We Hope and Dream

Thu, 09/15/2016 - 14:17 -- SenGlam

We hope and wish dreams come true

But in the end they never do.

We pray they stay

But eventually we all walk away.


People don't realize the pain and agony

They just pretend to walk beside me

When I reach out my hand

On my face is where I land. 


The cuts they burn

But people never really learn

It helps with relief

Some aren't as deep as they seem


Please don't act like you care

Because that's when I get really scared

I don't want to be this way

Some how it just seems to stay


A sense of comfort in my head

You're not the reason my blood is red

Listen to what I'm saying

One day you might be laying


In my shoes you'll one day walk

But until then please don't talk

My scars and cuts I chose to show

Not for attention but for you to know


What I go through is very real

All these emotions I tend to feel

Not a distant memory but a line

It's not a weakness but,  a sign.
