The darkness lingers still .
I write and I am chastised.
I speak my mind
I am chastised for what I say.
I don’t understand yet I understand parts of it.
I can’t understand it all yet I want to with all my heart.
I ponder about that a very long time.
This is hard, so hard.
My heart breaks, my mind yearns for answers
my soul searches for peace.
What happened to the simple times?
I just want to love and to be loved.
I just want to understand,
but I will forever be in the darkness.
