Despair, anguish, anger.
Nothing seems right
Tears pour from my eyes
Pain courses through my body
Each heartbeat making it worse
The cause of it all?
I can’t stand it
The taunts
The insults
It seems everyone is against me
But then there’s… him
He told me differently
He told me I wasn’t as I thought
He made me feel strong, not weak
He made me feel beautiful, not ugly
I think of him and my tears change
Acceptance, healing, joy
Everything seems different now
Tears still flow, but not from pain
I understand now
Time to just be me
Not what everyone wants me to be

The End
