I AM NOT FORGOTTEN

 

I constantly have to be strong

Even when it feels like eggshells inside

I constantly have to smile, sing a song

Even though inside I cry

I close my eyes I see chains

Yet I walk free

Feel like I’m in a prison

A prison called ME

 

The people I love turn a blind eye

My answer: “I understand”

Count my blessings; cut my losses

No time to feel abandoned

I have learnt not to cry for help

No time to be weak

I got to keep running this race

There is no place for defeat

 

I feel like ice inside

Like an air-conditioner; whose controls are broken

I have frozen all my hurt

These things MUST REMAIN UNSPOKEN

 

What keeps me going?

A PROMISE

That my father from whom I’m hewn

WILL NEVER FORGET

NEVER DISOWN

Though it might tarry

The appointed time is set

 

We are hard pressed on every side

BUT NOT CRUSHED

Perplexed

BUT NOT IN DESPAIR

Persecuted

BUT NOT ABANDONED

Struck down

BUT NOT DESTROYED

 

HE DOES NOT FORGET
