Part One - Sean
For years, I have been wondering
For years, I have been left in the dark
I do not understand the reasoning,
But I know it left its mark.
I don’t know how I feel -
And what’s worse I don’t know why?
All I know is that I am not ready yet
It’s not yet time for me to fly,
When I try to express my anger
I somehow have to cry
And I don’t know how to express my feelings
That’s why a part of me had to die,
How easy it was to be a child
How easy it was to understand
How hard it is to grow up now
And somehow learn to stand,
I don’t know what to do
And I don’t know where to go
I don’t even know what I can say
Or if I’ll ever know.
My very own T.R and his ‘Cookie’ who believed in me enough to encourage me to try. I also want to thank their ‘Grub’ for your continual support and spelling guidance, and most importantly for the unfailing belief you had in my writing, even when I had given up seeing it myself. In addition I want to thank Sean, for giving me the courage to grasp hold of my dreams, because otherwise T.R would never have made it out of my closet, and Devlin for making me laugh.
Rest in Peace Da.
