My Name is Batman


My name is Batman. 

Because I am human,

and I care too much for a rotting world,

That just wants to destroy me.


My name is Batman,

Because I cannot grasp reality,

And see the world through a mask,

That also hides my truth.


My name is Batman,

Because I take the weight of the world upon my shoulders,

To only destroy me inside,

And break my mind and body.


My name is Batman,

Because no matter how good intentioned I am,

I also feed into the darkness of the world,

Becoming a symbol of both fear and consequence.


My name is Batman,

For the fact that I have it tattooed upon my skin,

To remind me I am no hero,

And that all I do is collect dead weight.


My name is Batman,

Because I will take your pain to my grave,

Because I love you,

And hate to see you struggle.


My name is Batman, 

For the sheer fact,

That I will fight every ones demons,

No matter the pain.


My name is Batman,

Who secretly wants it all to end,

But keeps on going,

Until that righteous day.


My name is Batman,

Even though it will not say it on my grave,

My mask defines me,

And I have lost myself to that name.

  • Comment from author about the poem: This is a poem about me and how I take on other peoples problems. I try to be strong and put on a mask and say it doesn't hurt, but in reality it is killing me. I am batman because I unconsciously view myself as strong but know that I am not bullet proof.
