How do you know how it feels to be me?
There’s a lot more to me than what you see.
Have you felt the same hurts and pain?
We’ve lived different lives,we are not the same.
I’m simply trying to rebuild
a life worth having; in this hard world.
I’m surviving the trials of everyday living.
Oh why can you not be more forgiving?
Your careless hard words, if only you knew,
how they cut me through and through;
even though I make no judgement on you.
I wonder if you realise,
just how much you offend,
with your cruel words; that you sometimes send.
I would just love to be well, like you my friend.
I really hope that I’m on the mend.
And that my painful journey is near its end.
