I stopped to think.
To rest my head over by the fountain sink…
I decided to take a drink…
Only to see a reflection….

Shine in the water…
I could have sworn it wasn’t mine.
Who would commit such a crime…
To hurt themselves this way.

I rested my head on the bench…
But every second I would flinch…
I thought it was from the breeze….
But I had on two shirts and sweater…
And believe me…they were all long sleeve.

So I treaded on…
Saw a patch of soft green lawn…
And I spread my poor body against its grain…
Some guy came running out of his house…
Asking me if I was going insane.
He told me to get out of his yard…
And though it was hard…
I moved on.

See regardless of the misconception.
In regards to my perception…
And how others view me…
I kept moving to somewhere safe…
Where I believed and others believed in me.

Confusion set me back…
Lack of trust had me lost…
And Denial…kept me hiding in the…park…
Ducking behind the trees…
Lying in the weeds.
Now I stand out for all to see…
Even me.
 
Thanks

I'm glad you guys enjoyed it. For to see you in you is to be accepting of one self...and you must love and accept yourself before someone can love and accept you. I've learned never to hide who you are...for to hide it....in the end you'll only be hiding it from yourself.

Afridancr...I'm glad it helped you on journey. I hope you reach your destination in life...safely. As everyone else who may read or be inspired by this... :)
