They See Through Me

October 30, 2009
By , East Hanover, NJ
I’m done being strong,
I’m done being tough,
They know where I’m from,
They’re calling my bluff.

They don’t want to listen,
They want my life to reprieve,
Between you and me,
I don’t want to grieve.

I can’t grieve about losses,
I can’t grieve about life,
Lying that things are perfect,
Just brings me more strife.

They see right through me,
My pain and distress,
They know my anterior,
They know my regress.

I’m turning around,
Leaving my past behind,
Now I’m unbound,
With newborn hopes in life.

I like it a lot. I like how it gets better for the person in the end. If you like poetry, you might like to try sonnets or something that has rules. If you can be expressive with the restrains, when you take them off (like in a poem withought rules) you will be even more expressive. Just an idea.
