A game of illusions.
Where do you belong?
You say it's your own.
But is it?
Are you free?
Your own person?
Unfettered from illusory views?
And stigmatized opinions?
What am I grateful for?
Yes, I made through another day
Without faltering on the way
But is it all that I ever wish may?
Yes, I smiled and laughed at all cues
Worked through all of day's hues
Swallowing away the myriad of rues.
So then, what was the accomplishment?
That this heart is still not frost
And not all hope is yet lost
This effort will not me exhaust!
In murky waters, I didn't drown
In judgemental tones, I didn't frown
My Empathy, I wore like a Crown.
