Decisions - Poem by Simi Ruth
I have been deprived of the one thread that ravels me into one,
the ache inside me may look unhappy, but its just a facade,
I've been overwhelmed with the absence of fun,
although my wellbeing may appear to be odd.
I've realized that just because things don't fall into place,
doesn't mean it's wrong to dream about,
even if I don't flow with beauty and grace,
doesn't mean I have to live a life in doubt.
Even if you could never see first-hand my perspective,
I trust that you still can view the scenery from where you stand,
I know lately I've been begging for someone to be overprotective,
but if you could feel the way I do, you'd see my life is already grand.
The things I'd hide behind to feel secure,
are only material objects that I often abuse,
my thoughts scattered, I acknowledge I'm unsure,
but giving up is something I refuse.
My soul has been split into two,
with a part begging for simplicity,
and the other wanting you,
should I settle for complicity?
I'd rather be singled out than be trapped,
even if teared up eyes haunt the rest of my existence,
it'd be much more harder to learn to adapt,
I'm better accompanied by resistance.
