Redirection

Redirection

A Poem by StormeLight

So many years in tears
Over so many closed doors
Slamming in my face
Feeling completely disgraced
Why am I even here?
My purpose is not even clear
Drowning in all the ever-present fear
Clutching my heart so tight
Afraid to let anyone near it
I never closed off
No matter how much I wanted to
I kept myself open
So fear wouldn't control my life
I can't describe the love I feel now
For the girl who never let anyone change her
For new eyes to see every road block
Leading into a better direction
I am who I was always meant to be
Even if everything tried to kill me
We are all one of a kind
We all have something that makes us fight
Something we won't compromise
For me its my voice
My freedom to speak
For all the days someone said to me
I don't want to hear you
Keep the truth to yourself
Stop stirring things up
Stop making a scene
Stop showing me how I hurt you
Stop showing me you care
Stop telling us we can change
Stop showing us the way
Well I won't listen to you
Because my heart is raw with love
A kind of love that feels bitter
To everyone who feels asleep
The only kind of love that saves
The kind of loves that's brave
So maybe you are at that closed door
Maybe you're wondering
What the hell is all this suffering for?
You're at the fork in the road
Travel the road unknown
Feel the winds change
Feel the redirection
Of a soul that's lost their way
Leading to a hope so strong
It leaves a heart forever changed
