Why don’t they think to consider your feelings?
They stand before you, telling you of the changes
There before your friends and family
Right out in the open
Telling you that you’ve always been nothing
Wasting your time
You wonder where you’ve been
How did you make it to this place?
Are your friends really your friends?
Are you really here in the present?
Maybe with some luck and hope
This has all been just one bad dream
Why must I feel so much hurt and pain?
No on has the right to judge me
To tell me that I’m nothing
To beat me down
To shame me in front of those I love
Piecing myself back together
Brushing their words under the rug
Knowing that ever part of me matters
Forward is the direction I’m headed
Feelings in tact
Pride right alongside it
Feelings rule my heart
Feelings rule the world
