I’d paint what I feel
I fear it would be too dark
I’d say what I want to say
I fear I might be misunderstood
I stand here before you
Speak what I want to say
Get over what I can’t
Explain it so I also can get it
Stop the judgement
I’m asking for the impossible,
Believe me I know.
You’ve not lived my life
Never understood what I feel
Never walked with me
All you see is what you want to see
So till you can do what I ask you to
Stop with the judgements.
Put a halt to your negativity.
Shut it when you don’t know the truth.
If your words aren’t worth your silence
You don’t always have to speak.
Put your words on a scale
A few words of yours
Weigh them against my journey
Give me the weight of my life, my heart, my story
Forget that, give me the weight of what you say
Your comments?The basis?
Your opinions? Who asked for them?
Your hateful attitude? What did I do?
See. Then don’t. Just stop.
You have no right to judge.
Advise me when I stray
Kindness doesn’t cost a thing.
If I’m drowning, would you pull me out?
If I was falling, would you help me up? If not, soften my fall?
If I was going under, would you help me stay afloat?
If I ever lost my faith, would you show me how to believe once again?
If you won’t stay for it,
Through the tides and turbulence
Ride the high. Camp with the low.
Stay. Stay. Stay.
Leave with the negativity you carry.
I’d be lying if I said it won’t hurt
I’d be lying if I said it will be easy.
It’ll hurt definitely
It’ll be hard for sure
Sadness doesn’t last forever, it shouldn’t
Grief can be overcame,slowly but steadily
Mistakes can be pardoned, forgiven not forgotten
Difficulty can be lessened, for with each of it comes ease
I’m not brand new, definitely not
But I’m stronger
I’m scratched up, messed up and a little bit scared too
But I’m still fighting to survive
I’m not alone, not if I don’t want to
Letting you all in, trusting
I will stay hoping, praying, wishing and hoping some more.
Taking a plunge, I’m flying, lighter.
I’m grounded, staying true to myself.
After this all, judge me then.
