Poem -

"I'll kneel, I'll kneel."

"I'll kneel, I'll kneel."

"Will you catch me if i fall?"
I whisper in fear,
No longer standing tall,
But screaming inside,
Screams they simply cannot hear,
But screams i cannot hide,
(I cannot hide.)

"I wouldn't let you fall"
You say,
But i hit the ground,
Forced into today,
Forced into reality,
A whisper to a sound.

"It wasn't your fault but mine"
I wanted to be free,
I wanted to shine,
I wanted them to see,
The real me,
Right behind my mask that i hold so dear.

But now i hear,
"I'll fear,
I'll fear,"
Of those who break me,
For who i am,
For who they cannot see,
For who is,
Inside of me.

I can't explain how i feel,
You whisper,
You whisper,
"It isn't real,
It isn't real"
But in my mind,
They tear me apart,
They seemed so kind.

I feel torn,
Between two,
The world i thought i knew,
In each one i was worn,
Too many times.
"Cover up the whines,
Cover up the whines."

Stand up,
"Fall back in line,
Fall back in line,"
For your fate has already been sealed,
And it's too late to change.

"I'll  kneel,
I'll kneel."

It's such a powerful, yet sad piece of writing.  I love it, it almost made me cry.  Not sure why, but then, it's great :) Great work

It's never to late to change if you don't like the way things are... But at the same time it was beautiful so do what comes natural...
