Is it about finding my own tribe?
Or is it about mixing with the tribe around me?
A question that is impatiently waiting to be answered,
Why am I not able to blend in even after my constant efforts?
Is there something wrong with the way I am?
Maybe I subconsciously distance myself from others,
Making it impossible for them to like me.
Deep down, I desperately want them to know,
I am not the terrible person they think I am.
Apologies and clarifications are weighing me down,
Can’t deal with the cruel judgements anymore.
Desperately hoping for a break from all of it,
How long will I have to wait for a companion?
To share all my unsaid feelings and thoughts,
Shall I embark on this journey of discovery?
Through it all, I may find someone I have been looking for,
Maybe there will never be a person to breath life into me.
Shall I make the best of what I have?
Start to open up with those who have insulted me,
Hoping they will one day treat me right?
Questions are plenty but the answers are still nowhere to be found,
Tired of waiting for my questions to be answered.
Hoping for a miracle to take place.
Nothing but a complete waste of time.
I should go on a journey, to see what the future holds for me.
Happy if it works out and even if it doesn’t,
Would never let sadness consume me anymore.
I will fight, fight and fight again.
An answer may be around the corner,
Maybe I’m just not able to see it yet.
