You know, I keep waiting for the perfect moment,
The perfect moment to live my life,
When everything is just so right,
That coming out has no spite.
Where I bare my heart and soul to others,
Nothing bad happens. No one is smothered
With shame and fear and retribution
But rather I see an absolution
That my fears and shame were unjustified
Nor did I ever have to seek safety and lied.
My life is my own, I mean you no ill.
Can we not be people of good will?
I want to be normal. I have always wished it so.
But sometimes life throws us curves to help us grow.
I want to live in the simplest of terms.
Enjoy the sunrise. Enjoy being affirmed.
By living life one step at a time.
Savoring each step along the way is no more a crime.
Friends to enjoy; and family to savor.
It is more than a favor,
It is a life,
Longing to be free of internal and external strife.
Is it really too much to ask?
