Don’t wrongly interpret my soul as a sad one

The sadness you and I discuss about are never the same

The one that I feel is something that I carry within myself

I don’t want to be looked as weak when I embrace a part of me

Blame me for being too vulnerable

Too humane to myself

Because when I was down on my knees begging for love

All I got was spits and footprints
