Did You Listen?

I did not

Nothing ever made sense to me

Why would they do that

Why would they say that


I never felt like they felt

I never spoke as they spoke


It felt unfitting, unwanted

There was always a wall between us

Nothing I tried to built

Just something which appeared


Scars always seemed to tell a story

A story I was interested in

Until I carried them on my own


Suddenly they felt heavy

Heavier then they looked on others


I thought they would make you strong

They do

But they are also a burden

And always will be


Nothing will ever let them disappear

You can just learn to live with them


That´s just part of life, I guess


Still, I wonder why me
