This Is Me

November 2, 2010
By , Hermitage, TN
A lie, a tragedy, a misunderstanding
An unopened book or an unfinished ending
A disappointment that tears at the core of your heart
A reason that your life may be falling apart

A complex puzzle with no solution to find
A simple trick to the mind
A book of questions without any answers
A fire to leave nothing but disasters

A rebel only aiming to fulfill my own cause
A stab in the back for disobeyed laws
Anger that runs through your very soul
The calm or silence, of self control

Stubborn and steady and all around free
A symbol of what life ought to be
An imperfect blob of an unfinished mess
This is what I am and nothing less

Thank you so much! I really think this describes me, but my friends just don't seem to agree. I guess I am just really different on the outside from on the inside.
