I see distance From what was Once pain. A paved road Lies behind Each square Marking a story. I see distance From who I once were And yet I am now So much closer To her The lost girl. These walls Are now Truly a home My skin Is now My own. I see distance From all of that Which created the scars I see beauty In each of them The skin needed To be cut And the blood Needed to be drained. I see distance From that time When the scars Have slowly disappeared. I see distance But I know That time is there Waiting for me In the distance That I see.
Sometimes I seem to forget For a brief moment I seem to forget The different layers Of evil in the world. For a brief moment I am reminded That good people Can do bad things That fear Can darken a heart. Sometimes My heart feels darkened Too. Seeing that humans forget Forget that being human Is being unique But part of a greater thing. Humans can be cruel Even not knowing it Humans can bring sadness To hide their own. Maybe the hardest evil To fight Is that one No one sees Blended in with normality Hurting another soul Because they do not know. Sometimes I seem to forget That people forget.
