The Attack --New Poem

Sunday, August 18, 2013

So this is a new poem I started the other day at work. The idea came about because i was thinking about the different things I would say if I were to talk to someone about my issues. I hope you enjoy!

~The Attack~

Listen to the story I'm about to tell
I can't remember the last time I was well

I've got a lot to say
and it definitely won't be easy

I've denied it all for so long
that I finally thought the pain was gone

But it all came crashing back
and I was too weak for the attack

I wish I knew how this all began
It's made me forget who I am

Everyone's too busy to see
this secret side of me

Instead I just make them laugh
which helps me numb the past

And no insults could ever hurt
'cause my thoughts are so much worse

Sometimes life can be so rough
and I've never felt good enough

I refuse to let tears touch my face
chasing perfection in an endless race

I tried to make myself bleed
in hopes that it would somehow release me

Constantly fighting the voices
saying that I make all the wrong choices

I could blame it on those who were absent
or the fact that I am somehow different

But in the end, it doesn't matter how I was broken
what matters in the path I've chosen

I dream that there's more to life than this
that would be my biggest wish

This attack left me hopeless on the floor
please tell me it was for something more

    Good for you, using your writing talent to heal from your pain.
Remember though that you ARE good enough. If anyone gave you the impression it's not so, THEY are wrong.
