to express yourself by more than mere words.

by Melissa Arel

to express yourself by more than mere words.

to accept and honor what you do not understand
solely for the purpose of understanding

to will what you have withheld
as you beckon the freedom of peace

to lay down the hurt thats layered your soul
and satisfy the thirst of a parched heart with your own tears

to become yourself in a world of make-believe
as the curtain closes on the final act of humanity

to live.. to love.. to sigh

chastised for living, the spirit grows within me
as i feel the pain and pleasure of being revived.

Well, in nut shell, TO BE AND TO SEE, is WHAT IS. Nice piece.
