The world tells me to keep standing tall,
I'm just trying not to fall -
But I'm sick of it all -
God, can you hear my call?
This and that, wanting this and that!
I can't pull everything off at the drop of a hat!
I'm only human, can't you see?
This is the way I know how to be...
I make mistakes
I embarass myself
I laugh
I cry
I feel
And sometimes...
...sometimes I hate reality,
So I do my best to be lost
in
a
fantasy.
They call it being pathologically twisted,
drowned out by
pills,
pills,
pills,
narcotically ingested,
my health is well invested
to the bottom of a bottle -
with my friends
Jack and Morgan -
I'll disappoint you, I'll hurt you,
I'll do You wrong - Because I'm wrong
deep inside,
where the pain
tries to reside...
The only place I can't hide,
The fact of the matter is,
I've already died.
So somebody hand me the defibrillator,
and slam it to my chest,
then send me ten-thousand volts,
"Revive Me!" Please do your best.
I dare you to love me, I dare you to try
I dare you to be there when I'm about to cry -
I'm only human, I'm weak
and I'm strong,
sometimes I'm right,
and sometimes I'm wrong,
at times I understand,
at times I don't,
other times I will,
and other times I won't.
There's the good,
and there's the bad,
don't make a mistake
of reminiscing what you could have had,
The past is the past for a reason,
It's time to focus on the present season,
Just as the world tells me to keep standing tall,
I guess this is Me just trying not to fall.

So is this poem related to you?
From what I know of you it doesn't seem that way.
Tell me more about this poem and why you wrote it.

@Yiah-yiah - Thank you.

@Jeanie: Honestly - It's a bit related to me. But also from my observations of the people around me. I'm at New O with my best mates for Mardi Gras, gettin' a little tipsy & feelin' the good vibes, enjoyin' the French Quarter, you know... But in the midst of it all, there's the little arguements from passer-by's, the disatisfaction, somebody isn't happy with something, etc, etc... I guess in the midst of my drunken stupor, I felt a little inspired by my own personal emotions and observation, haha.

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

I don't wqnt you to think I don't like it. I do by the way I just wondered if this poem relates to you. I have written poems about others but wrote them in the first tense to make it look like myself I write the poem about.

It's cool, I understand :] I've done that a few times myself.

i think i like it. YEAH I LIKE IT,

many can see, some can feel, and a very few give thought to it all. it is good to consider because if i do not try to understand i would be destined to stumble about, it all, however, at least to me,it is a very good thing for me to know that only people can ask others who have been there, and i guess, at least to me, that is what can make being human tolerable.

Well now that you told me where you are and the experience you are feeling it seems more like you were tipsy as you say and were feeling free but also saw the sad side of over indulgence. I see you as a very intelligent person and to see that part of your own weakness does make you a strong minded individual realizing that it is easy to slip into the abyss of addiction.
Hope you are having fun! Be safe!!
