When I was Young

When I was Young

A Poem by WolfyZara

When I was young
I was nothing but a fool
all I wanted was to clung,
Clung onto a dream I have had 
I wanted something to make me glad

But instead I was naive
and all I did was grieve,
feeling the pain as others walk past me
without even looking my way
all I ever wanted was to be gay

When I was young 
I wanted to be among,
among the ones who are love
But instead I was shove,
Shove into darkness 
and to see no more light
That was my punishment

When I was young
I wanted freedom,
and as each day pass I get closer
until the day I'm older
to realize you can never trully be free
You will forever knee towards society

When I was young
My life was nothing,
nothing but sorrow and pain
To feel drain each day
and when it rain,
Such beauty expose to the world
I could not contain

When I was younger 
I wanted light 
Yet cover in darkness for most my life,
I'm afraid,
Afraid that the light would burn 
The light I so yearn

But now I'm older
and I'm much more bolder
I'm more Stronger,
I make my own path
and be the light that I am
No matter how much pain I will suffer
I will keep living not for my friends, not for my family
But for me to prove to the world,
I'm uncurled

When I was young 
I wanted light
But me being small and naive
I did not realize I was my own light
That was when I was young
