Poem about my past...

This is a poem describing me and my past. So much shit leads to all sorts of thoughts and should be addressed. So many times I've thought about the unthinkable because of the shit I had to endure everyday from my mother, but I never fought back, and I stood strong and kept my ground. I did that I guess because I thought that was what normal was u know. Anyways...any feedback will be appreciated. Thanks yall...


Once as ashamed of me as you are now
I lived a lie, to be myself you didn’t allow
The fear of your rejection
The need for your affection

Forced into captivity
A slave fighting my proclivity
I learned to hate my soul
My eyes like 2 lumps of coal

my heart weary, my back tired
my hands shook , my eyes wired
afraid to sleep, alone in the world
my fears I unfurled

when I was young, we embraced
The real me never faced
Pretend I don’t exist
Forget me, I am dismissed

I'm out of your life?
My life style of strife
You looked past me like I was never there
But you knew all, pretending to be unaware

No longer afraid or ashamed to be me
For the first time I lived free from captivity
Still I wonder and long to be
Just what you wanted and needed of me

Am I that different? or life, for me, so much harder?
Why not look at me with the same ardor
Why can’t you love me?
Or simply let me be​

Thanks IHTFCC. Sometimes it just feels better to get something off your chest. I made it to maybe try and do that, but, it still is there. I guess I will always have these scars...

Some wounds never heal.

Or else they take a long time in doing so.

They say time is a great healer. The only thing they don't say is how long.

This poem (excuse the idiogram) really touched me. It reminds of of my life. Only, I haven't gotten to the point where I'm free. Live it up for me will you?

Thanks yall.

I'm not completely free myself. My mother has passed away and it all has stopped, but I will never be mentally free. :(

that was very impressive. I do wish I could tell you that I can relate...but I can't...I was given a completely different set of circumstances to write about...and you did a wonderful job on the rhyming scheme...you ever think about getting published? if not, you should at least spend a few seconds thinking about it...well...I suppose that is enough of my incessant babbling...
