i am an oxymoron.
i’m the failure of an achieving man.
i’m the sibling to a hero,
a daughter of a visionary.
i’m thought to be great too,
but I’m not.
i’ve done nothing to be able to accept a Nobel prize.
i’m air under pressure,
i’m about to explode.
i’m about to come alive.
i know,
my life won’t make you happy.
but I also know,
beneath all that achieving,
you’re not so happy.
you can pose


make believe

but sooner or later everyone will see you fall apart.
then you will realize, we are not so
we are both oxymorons.
but really,
i’ve been happy all along.

I absoloutly LOVE your poems!!! I've read the ones you've posted up and i would really appreciate if you looked at some of my stuff sometime.

The house of glass and this one are my favoriates in your work so far. You sort of twist it in the end which makes it really good :D
