As an issue unknown
I walk in the streets of an urban jungle
filled with scorn and resentment, side glances and crooked faces
as they judge something they dont know
as a recap, i am a human being.
I have feelings
I bleed blood as red as crimson.
See, when I’m living, I get scared and I’m so unprepared,
but once that fear is replaced I become a beast!
A freak with my mind and my voice grows and burns folks
like an untamed flame in a desert.
But when I’m shy…
I’m as timid as a child experiencing someone different that I and my chest tightens
The butterflies turn to wasps and the slight feeling of joy that I had before
shatters around me…
killing the lights that guided me, then I’m lost.
I fade away into the thoughts of dreaded pasts and old regrets.
In the distance, that’s where I hear it, a voice that should be motivating,
but so discouraging and it pulls me away from help.
And that is when I Fade.
