a poem.

Have you ever wanted...
to be something.
other than you.

I've been thinking lately.
What if what the world wants.
Isn't the same.
As you.

A piece of clay.
Moulded into a shape.
A shell you try
and try
to fit into.

But it's hard
and you can't quite seem to
squeeze in.
fit.
belong.
whatever.

See something better.
Want what someone else has.
To love.
To be loved.

Hopes and dreams
Seem insignificant.
When you can't decide what you want
Cant seperate expectations
From what you really want.
And why can't they just leave you alone?
Curl into a ball.
Block it all out.

But you know
One thing for sure.
When you see someone smile.
Happy.
Love.
You want what they've got.

But happiness starts in oneself.

So i guess i've been thinking.
Hoping.
I can someday decide who i am.
Where i want to go.
Ignore that clay mould.
Distinguish what i want
from
what other people tell me i want.
But for all the years ive listened.
How can i separate?

And i guess i've been thinking.
Why is it the grass is always greener?
Jealousy truly is a sin.
It tears the heart to pieces.
I hate it.
Unstoppable.
I want what she's got.

Something's truly wrong with me.
With life.

Twisted thoughts.
Twisted feelings.

So whatever.
Keep going.
Keep living.
Hopefully see better days.

I really liked that! I'm nowhere near a pro, but I am a poetry reader and I definitely enjoyed reading that. I loved the free verse, which usually bores me because only the author knows the way they want it said. I also really liked your message. Thanks for sharing!
