- What Matters
Belief in silence is golden,
Keeps me isolated and misunderstood by others standards.
Ignorance and stupidity are their standards,
By which they expect everyone to follow,
But I refuse to be everyone.
I wear no mask to hide the truth,
Unlike those bleached orange fluff puffs.
When I speak out, I am only silenced by their stares.
No one listens but then not many care too.
A small price I pay for my differences,
This lonely isolation.
Silence and isolation only strengthens my resolve,
They calm the torment of society surrounding me,
Still there’s the over-shadowing disgust that causes ripples in the water,
The stares and gossip sicken me.
The bliss is that their ignorance sets me free,
Free to drift through rainy nights on the calming sea.
Where alone I remain until the dawn rises,
Shinning on those who care enough to leave ignorance behind.
