In the crowd.

Talking away.

People see me and think i'm normal.

If only they could see the inner me.

That is trapped inside within the prison cell of my ribs.

Banging and screaming to get out.

Oh how misunderstood I am really.

Really,

I'm fearful, but act fearless.

I'm afraid of being rejected because i have been rejected so many times.

I'm afraid of the light because i'm so use to being in the dark.

I'm afraid of people because I'm been alone a lot.

I'm afraid of help because people do not really care.

I'm over protection of my o'hana because no one was ever there for me.

I'm willing to fight if you attack my family anyway.

But if you attack me go ahead.

In another life I probably deserve that.

you can hate me all you want.

That is okay.

I deserve much worse.

Than being hated.

Poetry is my escape from hate.

So I might be alone, 

But I'm okay with that.

I have people that I can protect.

And that is enough for me.

So going ahead and try to break me.

I have family to care for,

even if some of my O'hana hates me.

I would die for them, 

If that mean they can be happy and safe.
