First breath
Cold air, gleaming lights
I do not understand this world
I do not know sometimes it is cold
Sometimes I must fight alone
Parents and family protect me
I am different but cannot understand why
Things happen bad and good
A brother comes
I want to protect him with all my strength
Care for him with all my love
We bicker and fight
But still I protect him
I cannot understand people, emotions, friends
All lost inside my mind
Alone
Around people but always alone
Without a friend
Family do not know what it is like
To be alone
I understand I am different
Blessing or curse
I do not know
But I fight for it to be a blessing
I write
Words flow
I get lost among stories, tales, and books
I do not know what lies ahead
But I charge through life
