A Poem by Anon

To Be ME

so many years in denial
its hard to see what is mine
peeking through the mental cloud
of what it means to be ME
seeing a glimpse here and there
ever denying what is there
It just can't be ME
for that can't be right
been brought up to be the same
just another rightous man
some who does and talks
just like others might
but that just can't be ME
So i took strides
ignoring demeaning eyes
and it hurt inside
just to be ME
looking and glaring
here and there
for a bright spot
that is already there
to rediscover ME
to heal ME
to find out what it means
TO BE ME

-Anon

  • There's a lot in that poem. What side of it are you on today?

    It sounds like the heart cry of the 'twenty-something', still trying on identities and discovering how it all fits and doesn't.

  • Beautiful...

    especially:

    just another righteous man
    some who does and talks
    just like others might
    but that just can't be ME
    So i took strides
    ignoring demeaning eyes
    and it hurt inside
    just to be ME

  • kinzi i think somewhere between the hurt and heal :)
    and you got that right kinzi, maybe it should've been called a "scream" instead cause thats what it reads like
    bakkouz wow, welcome here. glad you enjoyed
    seeker hmm that song sounds kinda like it actually...
