Gray Skies

I don't know how Iíve been surviving,
In this cold and empty  world for all this time.
I've been searching and crying.
I've been hurt and dying.
Looking for that very person that could keep me

There are many things I wish I didn't do,
The are many situations I wish I didnít go through,
But everyday I pray that someday my skies won't be
As gray, and that when I open my eyes, I wonít see
A man, or all those people pointing at me for not
Seeing the magic behind the secret, and feeling
Blue, because all they can see is a guy without a clue.

And once again, I travel on the same lonely road,
Feeling empty and different, but not because Iíve
Killed or because Iím cruel, but for daring not following societies
So called rules.

So today Iíve finally found peace, in my heart at
Least. I've gone to a better place, where I can  
Just be free. And Iíll rest from a life of pain,
Hoping people will one day open their minds and
Make the world a better place, or at least judge us
Not for what we are, but maybe for the mistakes  
Weíve made

Welcome to Passions. I hope your gray skies become sunny soon.

Rod, of your two poems I have read so far, each one has filled me with sadness for you -I hope the sun will shine soon for you my friend.  You write very well and I look forward to reading more of your work.  Remember sunshine and smiles make the world go round.        Roniece
