Old Wounds Heal Over

"Time goes on, we grow older,
As we grow- old wounds heal over.
Triggers still pull on my heart,
But easier to handle than at the start.
If you had told me two years ago,
That my life would turn out just as so,
Back then- I wouldn't have believed you,
I couldn't see the hope as true.
It takes so long to come around,
Emotions are strong and keep you down.
But when you get back up again,
The heartache slowly comes to an end.
The pain of trauma is unbearable,
It takes forever, but it is reparable.
You have to take the time for healing,
Getting out and sorting all the feelings.
Everyone finds their own way,
In their own time, on the right day."

Crona's Poem
Fifteen years ago, I was put on earth. I started life looking at the light in everything, But that didn't last very long. Because the truth is There is no light. How can there be light if Every time I say something, I’m always cut down. So I just stay quiet. Because I can’t deal with the pain of not being accepted. Every time my mother’s eyes meet mine All I see is the disappointment and failure she sees Within me. So I just stare at the floor. Because I just can’t deal with the pain I've caused my mother to suffer with. Most people only have their conscience to deal with after they have made a decision, But I hav

Gay? Who? Me.
Are you gay? The question at first startled me. Speechless, unsure what I could say. Are you gay? The second time it was asked and I was silent I had heard it before, but just earlier that day. Are you gay? Each time it was asked it filled me with shock. What did it matter either way? Are you gay? When it was asked for the last time, I was at a loss. Should I lie or lay in the bed I had made? I am gay. Maybe I am too young to know, But this is what my heart wills me to say. I am gay. Maybe it is foolish to say so, Yet it would be true to this day. I am gay. There can be hate or they can embrace. I won't waver either way.
