Care

Care
For if you do not,
I won’t.
I dare,
If you don’t speak,
Walk away from you, not!
But closer to life.

Stare—
If you like,
The colors
In my eyes
Will not change,
And a scene
For you
Might be strange,
When no fear
Shadows my eyes
And no tear.

Bear—
All what you can,
Alone—
For my heart
Is turned
A stone
To start
A journey
On my own,
Where you shadow me
No more.

Wear—
This fake face
And go ahead—
Leave the race;
Life has barely
Made a start.
Depressed,
You may be,
But nothing now
Will stop me
Tearing you prison apart
And be
Whoever I can be.
… But myself,
… I am not.
