A Poem by Brandon Wilson

This was keeping me up and I had to get it out.



There are times when I want to hurt

And others when I want love

I want to cause pain to someone

Or tell my friend of my love


But I don’t cause I am afraid

I am scared to love, or to hate  

I can’t act on how I feel

Fear is a domineering trait


But sometimes if I let it go

I break people, hurt them deeply

But it doesn’t always matter

If its love or hate that I give


Because both are sometimes painful

And sometimes they are the result

Of one another, both the same

And at times both can cause insult


Sometimes I want to hide away

And at others stand in the light

Throw all caution into the wind

Let the world know of this plight


Let me be broken, I need it

I can’t be whole because I’m scared

I can’t tell them how I feel

To be whole I am unprepared


There are things I have yet to ask

Hidden in me, held by the past

Want to let it out form its cage

Let it into the light at last


Moments of clarity I find

And can see through all of this fog

See what I want and it is near

Just have to get out of this bog
