Only I Can (Jason M Smith-Lafayette, LA)


I can’t go on feeling this way.
I don’t know what else to say.
I don’t know if you want to stay.
All I can do is hope and pray.

Why do I put us through this pain?
Is it that I am insane?
Do I need to find a stable plane?
Am I just to blind to see I am a nasty stain?

If I had it to do all over,
Could I be a little bolder?
Not putting it all on your shoulders.
Then we could be together till we are older.

How do you say I am sorry for what I have done?
I am not God who sacrificed his only son.
Can I find the place from where that love comes from?
Or am I to far gone to see that I am done?

Some will never tell me the truth.
Some would rather see me in a pine booth.
Only I can find this evil root.
I know deep in my soul I will find the proof.

When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
