I am not waiting to be found, or discovered; like the next planet or a new species.
I am waiting to be seen:
loved and never neglected.
You can desert me on a desolate island and leave me stranded or
you can drink from my stream of youth
and listen to my words, as they attempt to soothe a tired soul.
For travelers' feet are sore and their hearts are weary of carrying their burdens,
let me sing them a song as they pass through
may they see my intent in my eyes and feel the warmth in my heart.
I am not broken,
I am restless,
tired of loving the weary travelers who cannot love her back.
I'm tired of being the portrait of happiness and the song of loneliness.
Why won't you sing with me, and paint yourself into my portrait?
