Constrain and save what you can, then pull yourself together.
Stitch up the tears and don't let them see the tangled wires inside.
You'll come undone.
Don't let them see. The pain you feel. It's not the end.
You are not broken just a different model.
All of the sympathy, no common ground to stand on.
The crushing weight of reaction to difference and traits.
Isolation, buried in your mind's worth. Don't be afraid to exist,
you're still alive.
Don't burn the effigy, show them that you're not a lost cause.
Don't be afraid to exist.
