repost.. written in 1982

It’s over!
In some ironic sense ..
That I always knew would happen.
It’s over!
Love and family
Always reaching for family..
Even in halves
Desperate for acceptances 
in everything I do.
Misconceptions and misunderstandings
Straining and rebelling
This is my way.
Either way is wrong.
Here I am!!
Trying to be heard
But unable to scream.
No one to listen.
Please I say ..
with open arms
Always smiling
That we could start a bond.
Praying to God..
it is not to late.
But knowing
feeling deep inside..
It’s late
The wall will always
threaten refuse and taunt…
Can we over come?
For dreams sake I try
secretly swallowing
pity and confusion
No questions.
This I do for you.

As always your poetry sings of the loneliness of your early life and the longing of a child neglected and abused by those who should have cared much more than they did. You sing the song of the child so well and so beautifully that it made my heart cry.
