Spread the love

We were hurt right from the start!
Now we’re in the middle of a war,
And you think you can make things right
?

*****

We were bruised right at the heart,
A little law, for a senseless inhumane course,
You stopped us from entering the open door,
And you still wonder why we fight?

I wish I could go back to when I first loved myself!
Because that little boy I knew had more than just a couple of dreams!
Until you came and said It wasn’t good enough—
You don’t have a clue where that left me!

*****

If you had touched my face with love!
If you had held my hands to understand!
But the whole world was already too gone—
And that is why we fight!
Searching for all the ways to enter these open doors!
Just another place to “be”
