#328 What More To Ask?

Rating: 4.5


I long to be accepted by you in equality
Accepted for what I am in reality
Not having to camouflage my true self
I can not help your lingering thought
pervading my privacy; or my inner self caught
In various ways wishing your serious self to help....

Yet to be held by you in esteem
To work together as a team
Is all I can wish for; you see....
I would love to have you as a part
Of my every day life for a start....
Tell me this is possible; even carefree......

I would capitulate and succumb
I am not that dumb
Not to realize the implications
But That is how my heart yearns
In sincere even if overt concerns...
Think of a way out of this in justifications.....

What more to ask?
Welcome any task........

Did try; I am not blind to see
Or to perceive as you be......
But all at once I can not change
This you must for yourself see surely?
Although I wish to your advice follow wisely.....
My life seems to be far out of range......

Come take me as a confident and speak
From the bottom of your heart share your weird streak!
I hear you oft trying me; but hesitation fills my heart....
My mind in stubborn self defense
Does this at all make sense?

Perhaps not; but It should
For it is true and you have understood
Yet bold and beautiful I withstand
Every stone thrown at me by society
Not witnessing any with gaiety
Just stoic necessity I simply stand.

What more to ask?
I Welcome this task........?
