I wish I could put into words,

What so few will ever know.

Not the events,

But the feelings in my heart.

We all have the ability to feel them.

But we choose to ignore,

Choose to avoid,

The feelings in cold fear.

For those of us who do,

The few, the brave.

We are hurt.

Let down by our decision.

Let down by life,

And our great expectations.

Let down by dreams,

And our realizations.
