Do Not Pass Me By
Each time you are kind and gentle and encouraging

Each time you try and understand because you really care

My heart began to grow wings, very feeble wings, but wings.

With your sensitivity and sympathy and your power of understanding

You can breath life into me. I want you to know that.

I want you to know that you are important to me.

How you can be a creator of the person that is me,

me if you choose to, please choose to.

You alone can break down the wall behind which i tremble.

You alone can remove my mask, you alone can release me.

From my shadow world of panic and uncertainity.

From my lonely prison.

So do not pass me by, please do not pass me by.

It will not be easy for you.

A long conviction of worthlessness builds strong walls.

The nearer you approach me, the blinder i may strike back.

It's irrational, but despite what the book may say about man,

I am rational.

I fight against the very thing I cry out for.

But I am told that love is stronger then strong walls.

And in this lies my hope. My only hope.

Please try to beat down those walls with firm hands.

But with gentle hands.

For every child is very sensitive.

Who am I, you may wonder? I am someone you know very well.

For i am every man you meet and every woman you meet.
