Walking through the living room,
I catch a glimpse of you.
Not the man I thought you were,
but the man thats really true.
Broken on the inside,
although you stand so tall.
Hoping you will realize it
before you up and fall.
You look at me with hatred,
I look at you with hope.
For I am strong enough to withstand
fates cruel and wicked joke.
For all the anger you throw my way,
I reciprocate with sympathy.
Like Jesus on the stake,
my heart is filled with empathy.
To never allow love
to enter into your being,
is death after life-
an existence without true meaning.
Walking through the living room,
I caught a glimpse of myself.
Afraid at one time
to let in anyone else.
Fear of being hurt.
Fear of not being perfect.
Fear of trying,
then hearing you don't deserve it.
If only you could see,
We are not that different-you and I.
The only difference is
the reality we see out of our eyes.
It took someone to teach me,
that I possesed true worth.
And I will pay it forward,
to help your anger to submerse.
For although you may not know it,
I am not the one you hate.
Your anger comes from inside,
and that anger you reciprocate.
Walking through your life,
You caught a glimpse of you.
And that glimpse you didn't like,
but it doesn't have to remain true.
A glimpse is just a glimpse,
the details are still unseen.
Accuracy comes from you
to define your true meaning.

Thank God I have my writing to release all my inhibitions and conquer all my fears.
