Growing Pains (A Poem)

Updated on June 12, 2013

Apart from the rest I reflect on thoughts that resurrect and wreck so embrace your head and neck. In the depths of the mind, my darkest thoughts reside. Seeing the world through my eyes, traveling to the brain behind. The memories inside, they hide. Uncovered by the slightest,hint, but it's still not manifest. Yet gets the best of me nevertheless. Remembering now what happened then. When I was still a boy among men. Young and so oblivious. Grew older and curious, stumbling around in the mysterious. There I still grew, learned more than I ever knew. I wished some facts weren't true. What happened happened, can't change the past, but I began a promise to be better than the last.


Hate, confusion and frustration. A lost boy with a human disconnection. Hope, love and faith is what I've brought. Thinking thoughts I've thought. Maybe things would change. Depressed and overwhelmed in my pain. I've been there. Found a way through it all. Yeah I've done that. Life continues, I'm on the right track.


In this world I live, this life I live. Many things I've seen, from the places I've been. I can say honestly, my past was not serene. Troubled youth. Bad behavior, hyperactivity and a sweet tooth. Wished I lived a lie because I couldn't face the truth. Foster child always acting wild. Went from house to house you can check my file. All it took was faithful parents, interrupting the series of unfortunate events. Raised me, loved me, taught me what a family represents. I swear they were heaven sent.


Hate, confusion and frustration. A lost boy with a human disconnection. Hope, love and faith is what I've brought. Thinking thoughts I've thought. Maybe things would change. Depressed overwhelmed in my pain. I've been there. Find a way through it all. I've done that. Life continues, I'm on the right track.


I know now is better than then. So damn true there's no comparison. No longer lost, no thoughts making me crisscrossed. Living life, little to no strife. Young man just doing what can to fulfill dreams while trying to remain sane.


Hate, confusion and frustration. A lost boy with a human disconnection. Hope, love and faith is what I've brought. Thinking thoughts I've thought. Maybe things would change. Depressed overwhelmed in my pain. I've been there. Find a way through it all. I've done that. Faith in God, I'm never falling back.
