Me vs. YOU

By Phoenixx Vann der Snatsch

Me against the world.

Again, by myself.

No one standing by my side.

No strength to carry on.

Tears fall down my face.

I'm afraid to see

What is ahead of me.

I'm afraid to be

What everyone wants of me.

I cannot see through the fog.

Nor do I want to.

My pain consists of

All of me.

None of me.

Most of me.

A little of me.

A bit of me.

Some of me.

Yet, of course,

Not enough of me.

My pain subsides,

And increases.

I cannot rise to the occasion.

I cannot rise above the pain.

The world is not on my side...

I'm on my own,

Left to teach,

Learn,

Hate,

Love,

Scream at,

Whisper to,

Create,

And destroy

What I know as me.

What I know of me.

What I know becomes me.

And sooner or later,

I will devour me.

And then,

Only then,

Can I say I'm above my pain.

Hello, Phoenixx. I hope you find some peace and more happiness as you fight. This was sad and beautiful. Sad because of the obvious reason and beautiful because of the picture at the bottom of the hub. Voted it up!

Phoenixx,

Wow, this is very powerful! I can certainly appreciate the sentiment. What a wonderful job you've done expressing these emotions in an anxious and aggressive kind of manner. Thanks to writinglover for sharing!

Up and more!
