frustration, anger, fear
the three emotions replay,
thrusting arrows to my heart, tear
my wounds apart, sets my dignity on a tray.
Why is it so difficult
to find somewhere meant for me,
where fireballs don't launch from a catapult,
where being loved is easy.

Must my future be clouded
because I don't know what I seek.
Must my life be bounded
in lines meant for the weak.
My mind is set out to fly, to achieve,
but my body is honest
there's a difference between believe and deceive
so, I can't make this promise.

Is it right that one word 
can change your life in a second,
make you reconsider everything you heard,
those praise, those compliments, a waiting weapon?
Everything happens for a reason,
I'm getting tired of that phrase,
not believing that a new season
can wake me from my daze.

I'm kind of lost at this point in my life, I don't know what the future has in store for me. But, you may interpret it however you like.

    This "where being loved is easy" and "waiting weapon" are sooo powerful and I especially love the last stanza! Amazing!
