Give me one reason – Tracy Chapman

The end of a journey

May 21, 2016 § Leave a comment

I am having a strong urge to write a complete nonsense,

I am having a strong will to curse at people,

I am giving out my “I don’t give a fuck” attitude freely,

When I screamed for help, you didn’t seem to listen,

When I stumbled and fell, you told me to get up,

I have been trying to stay strong for over a thousand days,

I have been hit by an endless storm,

I tried, I did,

Now I am failing everything, 

For the strength is no longer there, 

For the urge to keep on going has walked out without saying good bye, 

Now I am failing,

I will find my own path, go to where I belong, 

If it means I need to leave you all behind, I will…….

For I don’t belong to this society, that constantly wanting to trade my dignity with money,

For I don’t belong here, where people are quick to judge, 

For I don’t belong to any places, where society isolate me for having different perspectives. 

What it feels like

May 15, 2016 § Leave a comment

It starts creeping up, 

Find its way to get inside my head, 

Like little maggots having a feast, 

It starts strangling me, 

Losing my ability to breathe,

As if I was hanged, alive,

It starts filling up my heart,

With the feeling of frustration,

For there is no move I am allowed to make,

I am afraid not of them,

Me is my biggest fear, 

If I lost it, I will send you a letter from afar. 

The rant

I’m hugging a bottle of white rum,

The pressure is big, the pain is bigger, 

I am made of steel and rubber, that what you expect of me,

Someone who is unbreakable, stronger than the hardest rock, 

While I have witnessed you break down many times,

I do what you wish me to, I will keep on walking, 

Losing me is not the thing you’re afraid of, it’s the three hundred dollars bill,

You listen to me not, yet you always come back to me whenever you stumble and fall, 

I am gulping the rum straight from the bottle,

It sees through me, things those are invisible to you,

It mends my wound, the one you think it’s never been there,

It embrace my weaknesses, when you keep telling me to be strong, 

It sees me breaking down, when you see me not. 

Fooling myself

I try not to remember, not blaming anyone either. To see that it happens for a reason, that it might bring me the fifth season. 

A rainbow in a gloomy sky, I do my best, I try. 

If there’s no light at the end of the long pitch dark tunnel, I will bring my own, and beer in an oak barrel. 

Is it you?

I used to know you,

But not anymore,

Or,

I have never known you, 

at all…

The one who I used to know, 

Where did he go?

They say

Night is still young, they say

Drink more, they say

Enjoy and shake your booty, they say

Allright!

I’ll drink and shake my booty all night long,

If I sulk and weep the next day, 

What have they got to say? 

Show me you

Show me you, more often,

Not that person who hides behind his momma’s skirt,

Neither the one who always appears as a saint, 

Nor the one who shows more love than hatred,

Show me you,

I have seen him peeping from behind the bottles,

I have seen him hiding among his lustrous words for his dream girl,

I have seen him secretly sneaked in into his past looking out for options,

Show me you,

Take the mask off,

The masquerade party is over, 

Show me you,

Show me who you really are.
