Lustrum

For over five years I’ve tried

I’ve renounced to flavours and sounds

I’ve given up everything and sacrificed even more

I’ve cried, I’ve wanted to die.

All these so I could have a feeling of belonging

To hope that one day I could be myself, like I used to be.

I’ve gained nothing but unhappiness,

My salted and anxious mind can never rest.

I’ve accomplished nothing but sadness,

My mute body screams for that musical soul I used to love.

I’ve done nothing but ignore myself

My mind is lost and confused…I don’t know what to do next.

But I know you’ll hug me tonight

And that’s enough for keep trying
