This life is mine



Dream a Beautiful dream but it doesn't guarantee
That you'll wake up to see the lovely things that you seen
 look at life and see were you have been
see were you are now and where you were way back then
 why is the future so hard to see
why are dreams just dreams
why are goals just words on a paper
why do i have to postpone everything till later
How did i get to this were did I fall behind
no one knows my pain and i feel undermined
I really don't care any more
Life is no longer fun nor an adventure but only a chore
I'm tired so tired of the lack of understanding
fighting i feel like i'm fighting and going to end up the last one standing
Tolerance is running thin with the ignorance of some
patience is running low from all but one
What am I going to do from the situation at hand
I need to focus, prioritize, and take a stand
what i would give to have done things right the first time
but i have to fix what i let go wrong because through and through this life is mine

These are but written photos of my life, my mind, and those around me captured as best as I could in words. I'm not a trained writer so my style is of no particular way. I have long detailed poems and short to the point ones. My hope is that you can see what I have seen feel what i felt with out braking your head trying to figure out what I meant. Enjoy! more…
