Can I be loved

When you look what do you see? A freak with a patchy bald head and a person with damaged shoes Or do you see a bum with no place to go My face is a face of pain, suffering and longing Longing to be accepted to be free Free from this judgement and from harsh life I sit here waiting for someone to show me A way out of this wasteland and away from pain When you look at me I feel ashamed I cannot help where I am right now I was cast out no-one loved me When I speak no words come out I am so full of doubt I'll find a way out I am mute I am quiet so no-one can know what it is I am trying to say Why am I this way
