The Difference Now


The difference now

   is when pushed

   I push back.


The difference now

   is when I知 hurt

   I値l cry



     Why should I hide it?

     Or pretend that I don稚 care?

          You know you hurt me.

          My pretending only helped you,

               not me.


The difference now

   is that I値l fight for the life

     I want to live

     and not the one

           you think I should live.


The difference now

   is that I make the definitions

     and throw yours away.


The difference now

   is when I walk in a room

   and you guiltily look at each other

   and stop talking

     I値l wonder who you値l blame

     for the problems in your life

          after I move on.


The difference now

   is that when you池e laughing

   behind my back

   I realize I must be ahead of you

                        and I値l keep going.
