Truthful Adverbs

Ironically, I cannot be indifferent to indifference.

Because it’s not what I am, 

because I wasn’t raised to accept and understand such things,

because I refuse to believe that’s the only way.

 

Ideally, I wish I could love and be loved in return.

Because I wanted to be part of it,

because I was so lonely and sad.

 

Sadly, I’ve been hurt and I’ve felt the pain of it.

Because it didn’t make me angry,

because instead it went through my heart.

 

Honestly, I know I’ve tried and that is not up to me anymore.

Because I can’t change how people feel

because I am who I am

 

Thankfully, I know I’m not alone, that I’m strong, that I’m good.

Because I’m surrounded by caring souls,

because I pray for their joy and love.

 

Happily, I have love in my family and friends, so much love.
