On The Inside - Poem by selvin mcrae

On the Inside
Written by Selvin ‘Ewan’ Mcrae

I closed my eyes tightly
As I appreciate who I am on the inside
So torn, with many lessons to learn
Losing so much, yet there is still a lot to earn

My heart is filthy rich
Yet it is always broke
They take the love it makes for a granted
Leaving me with only hopes

Insecure about some things; that’s me
Wondering if I die, would they miss me
My pride sometimes kills me
Yet still; I cherish who I am, on the inside

Wonder if anyone sees the brilliance within me
Did they stop for a second, to look and listen?
Do they see a soul that shines through out all seasons?
Yet for no reason I’m mistreated and mistaken

One day my talents will be illuminated
Shining so bright unlike any other lights
In awe, I’ll fight for people’s right
Yea, that’s how I choose to live my life

Their tears will fall as they wish to call
But my fortress is so tall and yet too far
I built myself a shield, by their will
And still, they just don’t know who I am, on the inside
