Of Vineyards and Black Sheep

Standard

Do you see me now?
You, who were a father of my heart
(Tell me, are you proud?)

I wear nostalgia like a shroud
Stubbornly, you decided who I am
Do you see me now?

And my soul…It became boughed
When I couldn’t uphold my part
(Tell me, are you proud?)

It was a heavy weight that you endowed
I had your blessing to stick to the plan
Do you see me now?

In the end, you wouldn’t acknowledge me before the crowd
So sure you knew exactly what was in my heart
(Tell me, are you proud?)

You never let me try to explain aloud
Your own assumptions still set apart
Do you see me now?
(Tell me, are you proud?)

  1. “I wear nostalgia like a shroud” was one of my favorite lines as well, great work. Also I wanted to let you know I nominated you for a Liebster blogging award over at my blog. You can accept or decline, I just wanted to let you know I really enjoy your blog.
