Poem: Prelude to a poem to Define Me

Meisjunk: Yours truly!
Meisjunk: Yours truly!

A poem forms!

I started to describe a poem, and the prose had a certain rhythm to it. It was instantly clear to me that my mind was writing a poem. This is the prelude. There is a link to the poem I'd meant to describe below. Enjoy both. =)

I feel

I feel
I'm losing myself.

I'm torn between understanding
of me and understanding
what the world expects.

I'm torn between
the demands of my dreams,
and what the world demands of me.

And sometimes I'm torn so fully
I forget what "me" means.

Meisjunk - I think we've all been here before. Find out who you are, because you are a beautiful person. By the way, your green eyes are simply gorgeous!

Nice!..very nICE, Meisjunk. You are the only person who know your inner self. and you are the one of charge. Not that want to flatter you, but your eyes are Georgeous too. Cheer up and remember, life is a constant fight that make us look for that light at the end of the tunnel
