I Stand - Poem by JAE CENTORINO
I stand alone and feel the water I'm
wet cold/hungry for peace
I reach out for the rain but my hands
are always empty
I stand alone I listen and pay close attention to
the mad confusion I touch the falling
rain with my body/skin is in great
need of moisture love.
I stand alone and the water flows down;
Down from my body/hands/face
I open my eyes, I open them again they're blurred
from all the mist I don't think I
can keep up with this pace.
I stand alone and water streams from my head
my arms/body. Is that ringing in my ears from the cries?
My body/skin is in desperate need of moisture
I stand alone crying from all the confusion
It's still raining my body soaked with pain.
I will never give in and cause my brain to go insane.
I'm alone one last time never getting used
to the constant pain at whatever the cost.
I'm tired from all the emptiness
the energy wasted is forever lost.
I’ll never stand alone again
I refuse to give in to the constant demand of
wasted time with unwanted/uncertainty.
when there’s so much energy to be channeled
into places other than broken promisses &
For I stand for myself and others
whom I don’t even know or maybe I do.
