Society Took Away What Forever Took To Find

Lately, I’ve been searching for the words to describe how I feel. When I think that finally, I belong, I am simply rejected once more, as if society took away what forever took to find.

In the depths of my heart, a turbulent storm brews, as I search for words to capture the essence of my feelings. It feels as though society, with its unwavering hand, has snatched away what I fought so ardently to discover.

I want to be understood, to be embraced for who I am, with all my quirks and complexities. Yet, time and again, I find myself cast aside, left to grapple with a sense of isolation that cuts deep into my soul. The pain of rejection intertwines with the bittersweet taste of fleeting acceptance, leaving me bewildered and disheartened.

The journey to finding my rightful place has been an arduous one, paved with tears shed and battles fought. I have painstakingly pieced together the fragments of my identity, attempting to forge a connection with the world around me. Society, with its high tides, low tides, hurricanes and cyclones, leaves me alone again, only to be met with rejection feels like a betrayal of my very essence. It is as if the effort I poured into understanding myself was in vain.
