Transcendence: A Poem for Myself

Updated on July 9, 2012
This was how I viewed life before HER.  I wrote this poem during the lowest point of my life...but at this very moment of publishing, I can already claim that I am indeed one of God's beautiful creation because He has given me a wonderful gift...
This was how I viewed life before HER. I wrote this poem during the lowest point of my life...but at this very moment of publishing, I can already claim that I am indeed one of God's beautiful creation because He has given me a wonderful gift...


This is me a WANDERER, struggling in the most FRAGILE reality of the one inside me.

I am continuously moving around, yet AFRAID to break and shatter.

I live a life of pain, always painting the OUTSIDE with the colorful irony of the INSIDE.

I am sketching my heartaches with a colorful smile,

pretending to be OBLIVIOUS of the things i wish to change but CANNOT.

SCARRED from the very beginning, I remained the ANTONYM of a beautiful creation.

Cynical towards that "HAPPINESS" others talked about,

I had been the most cruel critique towards the spirit that HIDES within me.

I am the enemy of my "SELF".

The nemesis of the TRUTH of my being a daughter of GOD.

Each day I find it hard to ARTICULATE what I am afraid of,

taking each stride with utmost care.

I'm NOT looking back, I'm NOT looking anywhere.

I harshly direct myself each day to spend every energy to inspire others around me...

so that THEY may have the REASON to live,

and go on which I NEVER had and still DON'T HAVE.

      Very deep and reflects how one feels when life seems to bleak. I am glad that you have discovered how very important you are as a child of God.

      @Katyzz - Thank you for dropping by. I have learned a lot during those painful moments. Now that God has given me a daughter, I have already gained back that self-worth. Thanks for your words of wisdom.

      Just learn to love yourself and then you will be able to move forward, we are all God's children and if we are worthy of his love we are certainly worthy of our own

      Thanks Sarah. I think everyone in this world is on that "struggling" reality.
