Just a little bit of rough poetry I came up with to describe the point I'm at right now. I'm thinking about using this to tell my family how I feel about mormonism. any way, enjoy!
My whole life has been lived in a cave,
Never wondering, never pondering,
Never searching for the truth.
Lies and deceit were all I ever knew,
Black and white on a stark grey wall;
Colors were a thing of sin, a social taboo.
Looking to the outside now I can see,
All of the light and possibilities;
Vibrant colors and so much joy,
All I can do, all I can be.
Looking back in I see,
All those who stood beside me;
All of them still there in the dark,
Watching the show, not wanting to know,
To know it’s all a crafty lie,
An amazing deceit, an impossible scam.
Yet there they stand, and though it hurts me so,
I know what I know, and I know what they don’t.
And I’ll never turn back, and I’ll never regret,
No matter the pain, no matter the threat.
My life is my own; I’ll never give it away,
Never again will I willingly submit
To give it away for some idealist.
Because No matter the reward,
no matter the price,
None of it is worth my freedom of choice.
