I wrote this poem a while ago and I just came across it today. These feeling that I portray in this poem were true I suppose. There were a time when I didn’t like myself and I now I can see that my only enemy was myself.

Untitled:


Up….
Down….
Left….
Right…

Where shall I go?
My thoughts only
Wander in the distance
Of an empty mind

Confused……
Alone…….
I walk……
With only the sounds
Of UNKNOWN footsteps
Following me
And my most resented enemy
As my only companion

I am weak
My body is tired
My heart is all I rely on
As strong as iron
Let it be my noble steed
Let it be my shield
As I travel to war



There is times when I hate myself, and there Is times when I love myself for simple reasons, because I feel that I am a good person and although people don’t like me, the only way for me to feel accepted is for me to accept and love myself no matter what I do, I have to forgive myself.  

Apology to myself :


To the only person
That ever really loved me
I treated you unkindly
Though you were the only
Person that I can confide in
I abused you, left you confused
To love you… I refused
To hurt you…. I wanted
Because I felt you were unworthy
Proudly I demonstrated my hatred
Proudly I wore it upon my skin
Aware that inside you were bleeding
I always thought that no one loved me
But now I see that if I don’t love myself
Then no one will……
