forgotten

forgotten...I wrote and I didn’t use the correct grammar.
I spoke and didn’t use the correct language.
I volunteered and I got laughed at and made fun of.
My world is upside down.
I delivered the wrong drill to my brother’s house, drove a long way for nothing, he called someone else.
I played the hero in the play and spoke up for the blind man and no one clapped.
I forgot to make reservations and there was no seat for me.
In a structured environment, I had to sit in the back.
It almost feels as though I don’t exist.
I sit and reflect on if I ever did.
Did I ever matter.
Have I lost it, have I gone crazy?
I’ve been forgotten, does anyone remember me?

Thinking in a Chair

I tried three times, I'll try again.
Hmm, let me sit in my chair and think.
I think that no man or woman should be a slave.
I know we should all be free.
I'll sit in my chair and imagine what
freedom for all looks like.

I Found a Song

Woe, I almost lost it.
I almost let go of this life.
I almost gave in.
Quit was on the radar.
Love was gone.
That's when it happened.
I Found a Song.
Another reason to carry on.

Say yes

No is too hard for anyone to accept.
No is not what people want to hear.
No is what creates violence.
No is what creates the hate.
No is what makes the girls cry and the men bitter.
No is what creates enemies.
Give it to me, make me happy for one day.
Please.
Say yes.
