See Me Hear Me

What do you see?
When you look at me?
Happy? Sad?
Or just lonely?

How is it you try
To see through my eyes?
Falsely? With truth?
Or with lies?

When will you embrace
The tears on my face?
Tomorrow? Next year?
With grace?

God's children are sacred,
On Earth, we are jilted.
When will you notice,
We are no longer muted?

Had to read this over a few times to really understand as best as I can what the author is saying. A lot of question marks within the text. Thanks for sharing dear one.

Very thoughtful and thought provoking piece. I think I will be dwelling on this for some time. I know that I have lived through this and can totally relate.

Good and healing thoughts to you.

@ Paul
I hope it reflected how living with DID makes me feel. I was so down when I wrote it.

@ JBR
Thanks for commenting! It's my way of screaming out to the public who doesn't understand, and doesn't want to.

@ Kate
Thank you. I need some good and healing thots right now. The only time I write poems is when I'm very stressed and others are close.
