    There are so many days
    when humanity frightens
    the most compassionate
    person away

    it takes only a knife
    or a word or a gun, and

    oh god,
    we scare so easy.

    I'm tired of living
    without faith,
    without promise,

    I'm tired of not believing
    in tomorrow.

    There may not be a god above
    but believer or not,
    there are so many
    reasons to love

    I'm not giving up
    I'm not letting go;

    I'm going to dream
    and one day
    perhaps I will fly

    and I will believe
    the best of people
    until it kills me,

    because the moment
    that you give up
    is the moment
    you become the problem.
I wasn't feeling very pleased with this piece originally, but chromeantennae convinced me (thank you, Ricky. <3). I think this was a very important piece for me to write.

I love this. Beautiful. The last 4 shall become a daily mantra for me. It puts into words the fiery struggle of my will, through discordant feelings swirling in the heart of hurt.
