Five plus One

How much courage does it take
to get up every day
and face every one
who hates me and walks away?

When does it come to a stop,
short of my end,
but in life,
when is rejection not a trend?

What will it take for all to see
all I do is care
despite better judgment
and desire to no more bear?

Who will finally understand me
and what it is I do
without settling for a lie,
but with a search for what’s true?

Where can connection be made
if others don’t want,
if others don’t speak,
their presence but a taunt?

Why must it take courage
to get up every day
and face every one?
Perhaps courage is to walk away.
