lying here

exhausted and beaten way down
completely selfish and utterly selfless
lost amongst everyone i know

fighting for myself or taking on the world
for my own mind or everyone i love
drowned out by my obligations

an empty pit or a belly full of fire
one and the same or neither at all
waging some imaginary war for no one

lying here horizontal and soul portrait
it’s praying over my bones and weeping
uncertaintly crept up on my world again

  1. I want to thank you for following my blog. I think one of the best things about WordPress is being able to find writing you can relate to, writing that you enjoy. And I certainly have enjoyed scrolling through your poetry. Wonderful writing. Inspiring, to be sure.
