I'm Still Human


Life is wonderful

Life is great

I have so many

Things I appreciate


So many jokes

So many smiles

It helps me keep

Going the extra miles


But I'm still human

With some unhealed trauma

I still stand here and take it

And deal with others drama


I wake up in the morning

And put on my mask

But it's cracked and it's breaking

I don't know how long it'll last


Before I finally snap

And shut everyone out

I'm struggling with my demons

Being crushed by my doubts


I'm close to giving up

I can't stay in the moment

My mind reminds me of my failure

And how I'm a disappointment

    We are all failures. But just like you said in your poem today we put on our mask. Some times are easier on my mask that other times. Writing poetry isn't easy on my mask, it becomes transparent and the thing which i am is able to pour out onto the page or screen.

    Writing poetry has done me and a lot of other people a lot of good in coming to terms with myself. Keep writing. I'm writing my failure out of my systema nd i know it's working.... again i say, keep writing.
