oldy poem (i am a foreigner to myself)

Updated on February 16, 2011

I Am a foreigner to Myself:

 

My eyes are shut
I see myself on a ledge
I see myself bleeding
Coz I’m hazard to myself
I open my eyes

The nightmare is gone
To live a dozen more
I am alone in this world
I have no one to shed a tear over me
I am lost in this cold world
Unknown even to myself
Unable to express myself
or even show love nor hate
I am what I speak of
for those bitter words are my own
Unable to communicate with the living
and left alone in the darkness to talk to the rest
I am rejected by my own people
I can never fit in
And so, I am rebuffed by my equals
I am a foreigner to myself
Left in the moist place to rot alone
Not bearing the sight of myself in the mirror
For I am a foreigner to myself !

      that's a terrible way to feel about one's self, but I can relate to it, in a sense. I hope it's old and not current with you. Now you have us to encourage you and accept you.
