Let Me Be!


Would you let me be?
All my lovely well wishers
My presumed life keepers
Who disappear when needed!

Would you let me be?
Neighbors, relatives, friends
Who bitch and yet pretend
To be my loving guardian angels!

Would you let me be?
Those animal-men of prey
Who eye just flesh and bone
Crushing the broken heart I own!

I tell you; let me be!
I am happy on my own
My sorrows mine alone
A journey yet too arduous and long!
