Found

I’m too far from what I’d guess you’d call home
Home, that is, in the sense where you feel safe
For far too long I’ve felt that I didn’t matter
I hid behind my tears in hope to be found
No longer lost in the far too loud silence

But now I’m here, speaking out freely
I finally found the words that make me exist
The words that might not matter to anyone
But the words that make me feel found
I was misunderstood and barely known
And most of the universe didn’t bother knowing my name

I never thought I’d ever be really found
Too shrouded in the fear of not being heard
I was unspoken and truly unknown
to be found is to be worth something more
A prized possession in worth nothing without faith
Therefore, there’s too much hidden inside of me

The thought of someone even bothering to look my way
Would make me feel a shred of happiness I need
But now I’m here, speaking out freely
I finally found the words that make me exist
The words that might not matter to anyone
But the words that make me feel found

  • Parul I am so touched by the ccnopet of soul mate .I really believe in finding mine no matter how many times I have been hurt and have been heart broken after falling in love. But I am sure you book will be a ray of hope in this darkness that love does exists and it may take sometime but will will definitely find the one who was made or born to unite with you. Can’t wait to read your book soon Tina Love You loads Parul
