If I listen, will you too hear me?
Am I laying down my sword only to be stabbed once again
Are we equal,
Do you see me?
Am I present in the world through your eyes?
The burden of life’s meaningless acts hold me tight in their grips
If I let go can I breathe
Will I long for the torment of the unknowing
Will I reach for the chase
Will I be alone or open to love for the first time
Will you care.
