Long have I searched myself unknown
and found, perhaps too late, my place
in a world unprepared for what I am.

So what, I am told by those
who remember someone other.
Cast aside by time I have struggled forward.

Separated we have grown apart,
Unable to imagine the past that came later.
There is no progress -- only memory.

Better to have remained apart
but still hoping for a different future.
Be not harsh. It is not a crime to have been young.

Condemned by a future that cannot be,
Persecuted by a present that should never have been.
Trapped by a past of my own and others’ making.

I have the solution, but no means.
Then its not a solution, or so it goes.
Who are you to take from me and give to others?

A careful cut, warm red fills the sand
From whence I came I cannot return,
but I give back what has always been mine -- forsaken.
