All I've ever wanted is to be understood, heard, accepted. Even though I know that no one will ever truly understand me like I do.

I have words.

I have pain.

I have joy.

I have something to say.

But will they listen or will they only hear?

The waters of my soul are deep and still.

The static in my brain is quick and lingers its way into exhaustion.

Fear is what pushes me to move on

and sometimes, what keeps me standing still.

Listen.

Do you hear my words tremble?

Do you hear my heart pound?

Do you feel what I feel?

Diamonds glimmer in the sky.

I gaze upon them as they make me feel like time is infinite.

Is that a good or bad thing?

Infinite time to feel the pain.

Infinite time to make it change.

Listen.

Did you hear my breath shake?

Did you hear my foot tap with impatience?

Do you even care?

Are you that aware?

Please listen.

Dont just hear.
