Defenses block my message through
My meanings misconstrue d
To serve your purpose & need for validation
Unheard and unseen these many days; years in fact
I look back to the emptiness
Existing, but not living
Who am I to you anyway?
Why do we stay?
Looking for purpose in the day to day
I've become a mighty shield
The protector of innocence not yet lost
Measuring the cost
Knowing the need out weighs the reward that waits beyond
Treading water through the colors of my existence
I run to stay near, without fear
But with conviction, my plan becomes clear
Alone in our togetherness
Avoiding the trespasses of being the infidel
I remain true ; though blue
Knowing what could be, with these words I plea for change
Acknowledgement of my worth and value to your life
Can't you see me?
I am here, opening my heart to you
Giving it every shot, a chance for betterment
So spent and tired
Needing some ease
My plea to you is to hear me, see me,
Feel, love and acknowledge me
I am here and worthy of your affections
Willing to give you all I have
Here's our chance – Take it please
Let's make it be more that it's been
Can't you love me just a little more?
Knowing the score is meaningless otherwise
No blame or shame, just some movement please
One way or the other
Need to know. Or go
Can't you see my need as a man?
I know you can, but will you?
