 Thoughts painted here..please take a walk with me


Do our eyes not reflect
a tortured spirit
We live in this world
yet..it is not yours
We are all around you
Yet..you do not see us
our eyes full of darkness
Why must you turn
A blind eye to us
As if to say
We are not here

We don't want your pity
Only tolerance and understanding
We wish to rid you
Of your blissful ignorance
We scream at you
From our madness
Such a futile attempt
You turn a deaf ear
To our cries
as if to say
Our pain does not matter

So many of us alone
Only ourselves for comfort
Some say
"We are here for you"
Drops of water
On the fires of hell
We are capable
of friendships and love
We desire a life
Yet you turn an
Indifferent spirit to our loneliness

Open your eyes
So that you may see
The beauty
of being different
Open your mind
So you may learn
your spirit
So another may move
And touch yours
Know someone different
love someone special
