What Am I?  what am i?…

I am less than I hoped to be
 Not, what I dreamed to be.

I am
Perfectly flawed
And framed in pain.

I have wasted my flesh
Chasing rashly, fantasies
I wished to posses

Torment is my brother
And loneliness
My closest friend

I am sinking 
Deeper and deeper
Near the end


I Want It To End.
The torture,
God! Let it end, let it end…
How long, how long, …

How long will it go on 
And it was wrong
So very wrong
Again and again and again.

I am, I am
Perfectly flawed
And framed in pain.

    MIchael, this is awesome, and I sure hope it is not reflective of how you feel about your own self because we are all of us flawed but hopefully not too many are in pain! I loved the way you patterned this too, bringing us back to the third stanza again with the ending.

    It is a poem that cries and hopes all at the same time, he hears you my dear friend, and know that you are perfectly made to his image. You own all the rare and beautiful gifts he bestowed on you the day you were born. Rise oh gentle man and be born again into the earth, water, fire and air. Thanks for the kind visit on my page, can't wait to read more of your precious story. Have a blessed day Michael Dim, hugs and kisses xxx
