Reborn (formerly I Am)

25 1 0

Ripping 

and tearing

Clawing 

and screaming

Why

Why

Why 

I ask myself 

Why 

Why 

Why

Gnashing

and biting

Loathing 

and Doubt

I just want to sleep

I just want to go

Hurt

and sadness

Guilt

I'm torn

I don't want to look

I don't want to see

I just can't stand it anymore

I don't want to be me.

It hurts

I hurt

I can't do this anymore

I don't want to even try

When will they see

When will they care

Why can't I 

Be someone who dares

To be happy

Someone who dares to love

Why 

Why

Why

Can't I be someone different

Someone who isn't me

Why

Why 

Why

Lost and hurting 

I stepped through the door

Self hate and shame

They are no more

You reached out

Put your hand in mine

You reached out

And I knew it was time

To lay rest the anger

To throw aside the doubt

The ripping and clawing

With your help I kicked them out

Hate and loathing

Screaming and fear

You gave me the courage

When I'm in you

They disappear

Love

and peace

Rest

and dreams

These are what are in me

A song of joy

replaced the screams

I am not ugly

I am not torn

I am not stupid

I have been reborn!
