I remember walking down bostonís streets
Snow falling so I could hear it hit the ground
Music in my ears, Walking alone
I had reached a pinnacle in my life,
I had reached a precipice
I had achieved, But I didnít know what I had done.
I heard the snow,
I heard the music
But what I truly heard
Was the pain inside, Screaming to come out
I loved this walk
Between Commonwealth and Arlington streets.
9 blocks. Trees all around
summer, winter, spring and fall
nature in the middle of a city
I had gotten away from the abuse
I had gotten away from the pain
I had risen above it all
To achieve what is expected
College, achievements, honors, fame
I had achieved it all.
but all I longed for
was the ability to be loved
loved for me
the me I didnít know
but felt inside
Walk a day in my shoes, and you will want to die. protect me from a day in my shoes, and i will be forever in your debt.
