I am simple, yet complicated
Strong yet weak
Wise but gullible
Torn yet durable
I wrestle with my demons
I walk with them too
I am who I am and want some approvals too.
Fight against injustices
Yet rise despite my circumstances
Able to carry on,
Guess my heart is strong.
I hate to see mistreatment
Although sometimes I mistreat someone.
I follow none,
Yet, want to be followed.
I don’t always have an alternate motive
But sometimes my motives are apparent.
If I love, I really love
If I trust it is hard to give
Just like others, I can really feel down.
I often dream of better days
And yes, I pray.
I am no better than anyone else
Yet I feel I deserve good.
I am just a poet inside
A wandering soul that sometimes can be blind.
If you meet me you will laugh
That is one of my things, to be silly.
Serious, not so much
Although hard is sometimes the way to be.
I am just me, and all that encompasses that.
