Poem: Prelude to a poem to Define Me

Updated on December 11, 2012
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.
