Reaction – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)


i am standing alone
looking out
looking about
scavenging on the fragments of my past
cutting my feet,
as i dance happily on broken glass
give me the strength i need
i feel tied,
and when i am tired i just bleed
you say i think too much
i know, they all say that, they all do
but would would be just the same
if you had been through what i have been through
no, it is not an excuse
i am certainly not the exception
but it is my way of coping
it is just my reaction
