Brutal I Cry

Let me be me

for a moment.

I bare try find

an atonement.

Deep my eyes

dwell in caves

after this life’s

wretched way.

I know me I’m

traveling time.

Me sometimes

I’ll fall behind.

I can be hurt

at times I live

for others now

I nothing give.

I tell myself I,

in soft rhymes,

try find calm a

way just mine.

I think I know

what is right I

look into me I

brutal can cry.

A failing plight

calls for flight

above a hurt I

set anger aside.

In peace to live,

creating a part,

me I try live as

life’s torn apart.
