What I Am

What I Am
4.3 (85%) 4 votes

Words are crossing my mind like dust in the wind
I approach to the table and grab my pen
Letters fall to pieces before my eyes
Shattering all my thoughts like sand grains
The creator of a twenty six letter alphabet is sinned
When you’re the only thought from one to ten
Words against feelings stand still paralyzed
As I write more my heart offended remains

A dear friend once upon a time told me
Each person is responsible for his misery
Poets may fail in life but succeed on papers
I can never ever fail in life as long as I have you
Succeeding on papers is readers choice not mine to do
Time passes rapidly and life changes for better or worse
Struggling for a better future is something I’ll do of course

Life can take a part of me some days I feel down
Some days I feel strong like sun rising during dawn
When I feel down I think about your pretty amazing face
I think about your warm arms when you hug me with embrace
Life can be as cruel as it wants on me, when I fall I’ll get up again
Because if I loose it all you’d be my everything that would remain

Take me down life, hit me with your best
I have a lovely girl that is unlike all the rest
Bring me down to my knees I won’t beg for mercy
I have a simple word to my lady I send a big merci
For being the one making me want to fight
For being the one keeping me awake at night
No words are enough to express my gratitude for you
For your patience and for being a responsibility
For the happiest moments you’ve given and will give me
I adore everything because I adore you
And if life means anything to me it’s because
You represent it all
Eliane…
You’re everything that I am.
