To each his own seems to be our motto
and since this is the case
I wish the aliens would come attack us today.
Because only then would we unite as one world,
instead of being separated by our own
governments, prejudices, religions, and races.

My fingers tremble at your voice, and you point out that I'm not ok.

I admit to that, but that does not stay the shaking. 

My breath catches and I fall down the lying hole. 

I stumble, fumble, mumble my words and they trip over my twisted tongue. 

I have much to say, but I've no way to say them properly.

I fear you.


I am afraid. 

I am scared of disappointment in your voice. 

I am scared of the anger in your eyes. 

I am scared of aching sadness in your posture.

There is no pleasing what I cannot become for you. 

I'm sorry.

I've never stood up to my dad. I'm practicing my words.
