Once I felt this strong desire
To be one thing and leave another.
My mind took me and I started seeing
All that I longed for and wanted was forbidden.
Because time is working against me
And I don’t get to decide anything.
One wound is healed and another is
Growing and thriving inside of me.
So long it has been of my life
You can only hope I’m worse.
I try to forget, but the sad thing is
I still don’t know how to let go.
But the heart decides and the heart will go
Always its own ways.
And whatever happens, whatever goes
Hope is awake and alive within me.
