I see you and your desire for belonging The failed attempts to fit in to ease the longing Draining your energy in tribe after superficial tribe knowing the beating of your heart has no rhythm with their vibe
Expressing your sorrow through written words Never quite easing your pain, to think so was absurd Crying into your pillow until the wee hours of the morn Wondering to God why the hell you were born!
Need for acceptance the pain of rejection consuming your days Lowering your standards in so many ways Reaching outward in desperation to feed your soul Blind to the notion of what it means to be whole
You were raised with the needs of others first Not knowing the impact to you would be the worst You have a voice and tremendous wisdom within Because you were oppressed, to speak is a sin
The internal struggle to belong is real Believe me, I know exactly how you feel Don’t ever give up or let your dreams shatter Please know from my heart, I see you, you matter
