YOU

Written by: Alison Sade Peñaranda

You made see how boring it could be
I felt it was worthless
But it was also you
Who made me see the colors between black and white

You made me feel the boundaries
I wanted to reach the sky
But it was also you
Who made me feel I had wings

You made me feel how it was in the dark
I’d never been so scared
But it was also you
Who made me feel how it was to fight back

You made me taste dreadful sadness
I realized I somehow get stupid
But it was also you
Who made me taste happiness

You made me see the flaws
I wanted to pretend deaf
But it was also you
Who made me see contentment in myself

You made me see how pride plays
I cried for denial
But it was also you
Who made me see what’s real

You taught me how to doubt
It was so hard to jump
But it was also you
Who taught me how to trust

You taught me how to hide
I was learning quite well
But it was also you
Who taught me how to see the truth in lies


You made me see how it was to be lonely
Your existence was so strong
But it was also you
Who made me see why the sun shines

You taught me how to get hurt
Forgiveness was scarce
But it was also you
Who taught me how to love

You taught me hard to change
I was so stubborn to bend
But it was also you
Who taught me how to live

You made me feel how pain burns
I could even die from it
But it was also you
Who made me feel life itself

Yes, it was you
And it still is you.
