Feelings Are A Sin

by Gwenyth Hill   Oct 7, 2017

I hate this facade I'm forced to wear
In reality I'm lost and in despair
Who really knows me?
When I let no one in
How can I when feelings are a sin

I'm tormented, broken, forced to never reveal
The true me is locked up and stamped with a seal
It overwhelms me sometimes
And I struggle to breathe
Praying that someone, anyone will see the real me

Our society does not allow for people like me
People who need help to see
The happier side of life
As we are all shrouded in darkness and struggle in strife

I want to be happy, don't get me wrong
I hate this sadness, and its bitter song
I don't belong here, and I don't belong there
Where do I belong? Nowhere

For now I will go on living
This cursed existence
Maybe someday the world will be more forgiving and allow me coexistence

    You belong in the fields of happiness and to the sky full of wonders.
    And please don't feel that you belong nowhere.
    Take care, love yourself because if you don't love yourself why would others do.
