Heart of wax

This heart of mine

Was once a candle,

It became a wildfire

It was too much to handle.

The flame disappeared

They realised I was broken,

Only silenced remained

And my words unspoken.

I tried to fit in this world

And find my home,

The more people learned

The more I felt alone.

I became an outcast

The freak of the street,

All because I chose to march

To my own beat.

Earth found me there

Digging my own grave,

It showed me freedom

I didn’t have to behave.

This heart of mine

Is now left with cracks,

The fire that once burned

Is nothing more than wax.
