If Someone Had Believed In Me

Small frail child

Sitting alone in a field

Listening to the sound of nothing

The screaming finally stopped.

A knife lays beside her

The finality of it all

Laid out for all to see.

Wondering if someone, anyone

Had believed in me

Would I be here today?

 

Would I have loved people

That didn’t love me back?

Because I had two loving parents

That would have taught me

The right way to love?

If someone had believed in me

Would one man would have loved me

All my life?

Would I have written things that made people

Smile?

Would I have been more sure of myself in life

Instead of so fearful?

If someone had believed in me

At any point of my life

Would I have even recognized it?
