My heart is in fragments, I can't stand the pain.
Each morning I wake up, the feeling's the same.
Sometimes it's so bad that a crystalline tear,
In one cold blue eye, will slowly appear.
Clear liquid nothingness cannot describe
The rage and the sorrow that burn me inside.
The love that I feel is never returned.
For peace, and for trust, and for love have I yearned.
I hide my emotion behind a quick smile.
But sometimes, it takes just a little more guile
To keep from exposing sharp edges inside
Of my heart, and my soul; all your pity's denied.
If I could just change the way that you view
Your brothers and sisters, regardless of hue;
In spite of your cultures, religions, and sex,
How healing would be the global effects.
Preacher of love, brotherhood, and respect,
Hatred and apathy leave my spirit wrecked.
I set an example, I loathe not one man;
I give of myself, and open my hand.
Ironic it is that a man full of love
Cannot find a soul mate, nor is capable of
Saving his own race, when either of these
Accomplished would finally put him at ease.
Long have I realized that I may not be
Happy or at peace, for eternity.
But I persevere, and smirk painfully
At the comfortable existence the Fates dealt to me.
