-Been And Gone-
As time goes by with dust and mist covering the air,
I walk in uncertainty unknown, unseen, unheard.
I listen to how people talk, how people see,
how people speak and ask is this how I should be?
They look at me, with uncertain eyes not sure if i am
good or bad.
I look back confusedand dazed uncertain, who I am I look
and I feel though kind is who I am but not sure anymore.
I look atthem and say why? Because I am different or is it because
I am slow? Is it because of what I know?
They look and laugh with darkness among their eyes seek fun
with pain, wHich I am very use too.
Now I look back and see this now
I grin and laugh then walk away.
I say there is no time for pain, through sorrow when it rains
or when it's dark no matter what just let it shine.
