I’m not asking for nothing
Just to hold your hand for
A little while maybe to
Beside me stand and ease
My insecurities upbuild my
Capabilities of standing on
Mine own two feet to try
And meet the coming of a
Dawn that holds no comfort
Or prospect of the warmth
Of companionship with one
As tender without scorn as
I see you in my eyes
I’m not asking for nothing
Just the chance to leave behind
Those inequalities compounded
By the lies of living without
The heart for giving in to our
Better sides
