OUR SECRET PRAYER
We are the ones with our heart on our sleeves and our heart in a cage. With the brightest smile and the heartiest laugh.
We are the ones who are still searching for a reason to stay, looking for a hospital for souls.
We tell ourselves “One more day” because a stranger smiled at us or “This could work” because the food was good.
We may overthink things and be the definition of paranoia. But we are almost always right so we don’t think we can stop.
Although people don’t believe when we say we are sane. We live another day just to try and try again.
We are angry, compassionate, kind, sad, empty old souls. But you’ve never seen anyone make a compromise like we do.
Yes, we cannot deny, we do not love this place as much as we should. But you’ll never see us with a cut so deep it could kill.
We are the patient ones, the crazy ones. The ones very easily forgotten.
We are the ones who send our worries to the Lord and pray He takes us in our sleep.
