I’m far from typical,
sometimes I feel a little alone,
a little too unique
in the way that I think,
my past isn’t rosy
all colored in pink,
I don’t live in
‘drama and baggage free’,
cause the world I see
is weighed with an anchor,
not just my pain,
but the plight of millions
whose voices ignored
need to be heard.

I listen,
I want to hear their cries
because pain recognizes pain,
and though I fly far above my ashes,
I need to help others
find their flame.
