Those who say that sunshine is happiness have never danced in the rain.


I’m not a prisoner of cupid,
nor am I garbed in only black.
I’m not the victim of society,
nor have I the will to fight back.

I’m not shackled by my ignorance,
nor am I the wisest of men.
I’m not the king’s advisor,
nor I am the keeper of his hen.

I haven’t got an alibi to live.
nor I have got one not to.
I am the average, the plain.
And in a mirror, I. Am. You.

thanks! yeah, my rhythm isn't very good. i've never actually learnt how to write poetry and i don't really read it either. i just kind of write down my thoughts and hope to god that they make sense.

Very powerful. I can tell from your works you are very introspective. You may want to work on your rhythm somewhat, though.
