Live to Be Despised

I live a few miles from the ocean, with my husband and our 3 boys. I always make an effort to spread kindness and light wherever I go.

As I search the depths of my soul

For what it would take to be whole

I stumble across a deep trench of loss

And scream for what I now know

A shell of a girl, I am empty inside

The vast walls of pain too great to hide

Lost in this place; I hide my face

From the shame inside my mind

Lost, alone, too hopeless to love

Stones of hate cast down from above

Tired and weak; unable to speak

Of the love I only dream of

To laugh in the face of your fear

To sigh when you know I am near

To love and to hold

To treat me like gold

As I search behind my eyes

To find the source of these lies

I see my life, the source of my strife

I live to be despised
