I Am Waiting.... - Poem by Tessa Marsland Pettigrove

I have not written in a while,
It’s been so long I almost forgot how I felt about writing,
Don’t know why but writing does make me smile,
It is like I have been waiting….

Waiting for you to see,
The honest true me.
I used to hide away from people,
I was always shy & scared
I always felt so brittle,
& yet I have always cared.

The morning sun upon my face,
As I lay in my nice warm bed,
It is like I am in my own little world in space,
Almost as though no one exists in my own head.

I cannot believe how you don’t see how much pain I am truly in,
I will admit I am rather complicated,
But I am me and no one is going to treat me like a bin,
The whole friendship & caring is so overrated.

I have been waiting….

For the time I show my true self to the world,
If they accept who I really am,
If anyone else is like me upon this planet earth,
I shall remain my silent worth.

I look at the stars,
See brightness upon the dark night sky,
I look at you for a split second of recognition
That you are still there by my side.

I have been waiting….

All the sad moment in my life,
All the happiness that has been brought to me in my life,
All the love & compassion within my soul…
Everything I have done has been hidden away…

All because I have been waiting….
For you to truly respect me,
For who I am and not who you want me to be..

I have been waiting…
I will be waiting….
Until you all see that this person,
Is hiding away because of judgmental people upon this world..

I am waiting…
