The Many Things I Wish To Say

This poem is to you, my fellow readers
This poem is what I want to say to the world
When you hear my words
Remember that this is me
I pour out my mind to the world
So that it will know me
And as I write these words,
I hope I can be a light to someone
And maybe be able to show them
That I am not that stereotypical girl
That I am strange
Wonderfully and beautifully strange
And I love it
What is so terrible about being strange?
I want this world to know
That there is no such thing as “Normal”
There is nothing normal about this world
We are all wonderfully strange in our own ways
I have struggled so many times in life before
Because I thought this world rejected me
Yet was that just in my mind?
Yeah… I was another one fooled into thinking that
Because this world loves to think it’s perfect
This world loves perfection
Because it is broken
And just like us
We are all broken
Yet unlike this world’s idea
We are each beautifully broken
Each a mosaic of different colors
Trying to put ourselves together
Yet each time we get hurt
Our colors shatter one by one
Until we are nothing but a pile of glass
Yet when someone sees us
In all our colors
No matter how dull they seem to us
They are a masterpiece to someone out there
We are loved
I, who have thought for so long
That this world has rejected me
It was I who rejected it
And the people around me
I who was shy in her dark shadow
Yet when I finally smiled
And showed the world my light
The light became a part of me
My soul, already broken
Smashed and brought back together so many times
I thought I was lost
Just simply roaming the road to darkness
But now,
I walk this road to dawn
I can’t stand the darkness
Nor could I ever fully walk the road to light
Not yet anyways
So now on my journey I go
This journey of heart and soul
I pick this road
This darkness
And light
This hurt and sorrow
And this joy and happiness
You can’t have one without the other
So I’ll be in that in-between
I’ll be in that realm of twilight
I’ll show those who walk the road to darkness the light within
Because in the deepest darkness
There is the brightest light
Just waiting for us to see it
It’s always there
We just have to hold out our hand and know
That we are not alone
Hand in hand we join together
This pain and joy that binds human kind forever
I hold out my hand
And say to you who are lost
I, who am a simple traveler like you
Wandering these lonesome roads with you tonight
See those people going on their way?
Those who pass by us?
They, who seem to be full of greatness,
They too are broken
You know them, don’t you?
Just like you
The ones with beautiful hearts
They know this road of daybreak
And I am on that road
To find the heart’s true light
Please join me on this journey
Into the great unknown
This world so broken
This mask it hides behind
This mask of perfection
Take it off and what do you have?
Just a shattered world
Wanting something it can never have
Taking in its victims one by one
Yet your heart is precious
Don’t give it up
Don’t be a fool like I once was
I, this lonely traveler
Though I don’t know what may lie ahead
Please as we journey together,
Let me see you for who you are
Show me your sorrow
Your pain
I who am just as broken as you
I am just a simple, Christian girl
Though some may think of me as perfect and happy
There is a deep sorrow inside me
I the biggest hypocrite of all
Wears this mask of lies
Yet as I walk this path
This road to dawn
This mask is breaking
And maybe one day
I’ll truly be free
But I can’t do this alone
As I hold out my hand
Know that you are my strength just as much as I am yours
Dear reader,
Tonight I want you to think of who you are
Are you broken?
Are you whole?
Are you walking the road to darkness?
Or the road to dawn just as I am?
Please show me your heart
And please…
Let me show you mine…
