Boo Hoo Hoo! - a poem

Boo hoo hoo!

I cry and I moan and I whinge and I cry.

The world is against me so why should I try

to get up in the morning and put on a smile

and be better than this for even a while?

 

If I wash and I scrub, I'll still smell like me

and the smells, not the smell that I'd like it to be.

My skin's like a suit that some other guy wore,

it got crinkled up and was hung on the floor!

My innards want out but they cant find a way,

perhaps they'll be outards on some other day.

 

I creak when I bend and my wounds will not mend

and I feel like my body is nearing the end

but still I am here just as wrong as before

with a blunt empty feeling that there might be more

but I can't have it, as it's not for me.

It's for those that deserve it, for those that can be

productive and pretty and work hard and do well

its not for those with a smell like my smell.

 

Am i right? Am i wrong? does it matter a jot?

It feels like it does, I suspect it does not

Is my problem the world or is my problem me?

The world's not admitting it, so it must be.......ME!

An oddity in a world of strange

I don't quite have the right sides to fit in. Maybe if I had straighter edges, less curved parts that stick out and show me off to the world. I attempt to remould, change attitudes and behaviours all to get those straight lines. Then, ...

Spirit Of Low Self-Esteem

Part of my work within my conscience is to separate a spirit of low self-esteem which is a symptom of my illness from the spiritual experience of lowliness which I get from the Lord. And not to confuse the two of them.I can willingly acc...
