i want to write

i feel


i want

to write


my mind has too much to

put into

a few words

as a child

i would feel bad for things that did not have emotions

such as letters that did not get capitalized

or numbers that were turned negative in a math problem

i had to push such feelings aside to succeed in school

and sometimes i wonder if that was the case with people too

i feel too much for too many

it is often easier to tell myself i don’t care

and push myself away from things

that i tell myself

i shouldn’t care about


hiding in the forest

the truth hides in the forest

the one in fairy tails

dark and mysterious

unknown paths and trails

only the brave, the curious

dare to venture in

and discover the beautiful and ugly

truths that have been hidden

i want to have the courage

i want to find the strength

but a few steps in the forest

is all that it takes

to send me running out in fear

of what i might find

the truth can really hurt sometimes
