‘truth,

Oh’ hear my heart whisper,

“If not when, then where do we meet?”

As the unknown has spoken for you.

We trust in a verse of time

while I seek for the skies of blue.

Surrender…. My blood of hope

follows the one who flew.

I’m a misfit who prolongs his desire

as beauty speaks from my soul.

Father, hear my words as I stand tall.

To you I Say; “I Am strong.”

As I don’t want you to cry along.

Mother,

Let me be who I can’t be.

Father,

Let me show you what you can’t see.

I Speak of the truth

as this world frightens me.

“What If?” I ask myself,

What if time gets me down on one knee?

‘Oh hear me loudly;

“I’m who I am supposed to be, you see?

Stamp of approval

    This was painful to read, and I mean that in a good way.

    These three lines actually made me cringe – they very closely parallel the relationship I had with my own father. And… they caused our relationship damage, unfortunately 😦

      Hi Ben,

      First I want to say thank you for reading my work, and liking my work. even when you could relate to it a little bit to much🤧

      Second, woow. Thank you so much for sharing this with me and being so honest about it! It can be hard at times when things won’t work out as they supposed to be.

      I’m glad my work got a moment to connect with people who read it! Sometimes painful and sometimes beautiful! And you showed me the beauty in pain!❤️❤️

    Really, really beautiful… I love this one Jojo. Some very lovely lines, “My blood of hope follows the one who flew” and “as this world frightens me” — yes, the world feels very frightening at times. And yes, hope follows those who somehow find a happier balance within it. A comfort to read this dark morning. Thanks for sharing it. 💛
