Writing to Survive


A need
The emptiness of a soul
The desire to be wanted
A hopeless case
Wanting to be heard

A message
Having so much to say
But no one to listen
Hating myself
And everyone else

A crusade
Yearning to change
The ability to smile
Forgetting who I was
Knowing who to be

An ending
Starting a new chapter
Leaving fear behind
Only words in my wake
Remembering how I came to be
