I stand back, away from all of you
You have no idea, no clue
The agony going on in my mind
The racing and anxious thoughts you would find
If you took a step in my shoes
Then maybe you’d understand that this is a little more than just the blues.
Take a step or two inside
Find out what makes me isolate and hide.
Stigma, Judgment, Insecurity and shame…
I assure that this is not some attention attention seeking game.
That I would never voluntarily choose to play
As I attempt to continue living on the Path, my way.
Poem by me.
