Head First

I feel nothing inside of me
There was love; there was pain
Overwhelming guilty - the only cause I see
So much to lose, but what to gain?

Crushing waves of dispair I fear
Hopeless, unworthy, wrong
These are the words I hear
Resounding like a gong

But now there is something new
Though little it may be
It's a different hue
Strengthening inside of me

Young and small, this tiny flame
I try not to smother
For it to grow is my aim
Out of words from my mother

Different - I know; Surprising - yes
This uncharted land
I think they may be best
But I may need a helping hand

Who knew I could?
I think I'm 'bout to burst
Here I go for good
I'm diving in head first

The End
