For my creative writing class, I had to write either a persona poem or a curse poem. I chose the latter because it sounded more interesting. One of the re-coccuring themes of my life is that I've been alone, so I wrote about that being my curse. Enjoy!

Alone

 

I could never walk like them.

I could never follow the footsteps of

Those who only pretend

They have a dream to defend.

 

I refuse to walk in the shadows of

Their shallow ambitions.

I’ll be different, because I am.

They won’t understand, so

Alone I’ll stand.

 

Alone I’ll walk

With my heart in tow

And my dreams soon to follow.

They won’t stop me.

 

I’ll make my path,

I’ll wear my scars,

I’ll live.

If alone is what I’m meant to be

 

Alone, I’ll bleed.
