Beauty In The Struggle

Don’t look at me like we’re equal
My life is a book of which I’m the only author
No one else by my side, one book no sequel
You don’t understand why I ask to be alone
Truth is, these demons are all on my case
That’s why at times I choose to hide my face
I’ve been through more than you can farthom is even possible
I don’t cry, I’ve tried but I guess my tears have run dry
These eyes have seen the unseen, the grotesque scenes of life
And these shoulders a burden that I myself wonder how I’ve managed to carry this long
This is neither a story nor a song, just a few lines to to let you know where I belong

Before you judge me, walk a mile in my shoes and give them back in the same condition
I think I have trust issues that’s why I make decisions like I have a premonition
I’m not like you, I don’t need the recognition
My heart, broken and hurt but still I love unconditionally
You think I have a problem but you’re the problem
You just can’t seem to mind your own business
You count my profits instead of working on your losses

I’m not prefect, maybe that’s why I’m subject to all this attention that I did not ask for
For you attention is all you want, if anything you want more
I’ve made decisions I’m not proud of but I have the right people beside me
But that’s the past, the old me
Now I’m free, from all the burdens placed on me
Not because I got help from anyone, but because I choose to
I just got sick of being a movie to you
I know I’m not the only one, people out there feel your pressure
But one thing I tell you is stand up, hold your head high grab my hand and let’s walk towards the light
I won’t judge you, I know where you belong, and better yet, the time is right!
We’ll look back and smile knowing that there is always beauty in the struggle.
