Choking on nothing,
A lake falling from my eyes,
But I don’t know why
All I want,
Is to be alone,
To be alone with my thoughts,
Depressing as they might be
But not every body lives
Not everybody tries,
Not everybody finds the courage
Being a failure
To have never loved is better than to have loved and lost.
If you never try, you never feel the sting of failure.
If you never have hope, your illusion never has to break.
If you never dream, you never have to be woken up.
And right now, I wish I had never dreamed, hoped, tried.
What’s the point if your only going to be silenced, grounded and denied?
Isn’t it strange,
How we go through life,
We touch so many people’s lives,
Yet don’t know them at all
All around are people I will never know,
Hundreds upon hundreds,
Thousands upon thousands
But without them,
My life would be incomplete
No one should live in fear because to leave is shameful,
No one should be driven to suicide because of abuse,
No one should be forced to do things they don’t want to,
No one’s voice should be silenced and,
No one should be denied basic human rights,
Not because of something as simple and uncontrollable as gender,
We are all human and we all deserve the same fundamental rights and freedoms.
