Beaten not Forgotten

For BATTER or worse!
Tired of facing this bat-less ball
My life tied up and beaten to a pole, 
like the color black, the pain is endlessly
Facing life with no possibility
Facing life's judgment
The envy of all matters
A slave to my grave, with no redemption
Gathering the lies and insults
More powerful than a whip on my back
A trap with no way to disown and burn the tree
Falling far from - turnover tracks
Forgetting who I am, 
feeling the flaws of my abnormality
Finding comfort in a noose
Suffocated by what seems to be dry air 
Tired of living a life under self-brutality
Dying slow, darkness down a new path
Now I see, there's no escape

The more I see, the more I feel 
Hell's got my  running plate
My Beautiful beat but never forgotten soul
That's how my story unfolds

reality can be a b*tch. . but thats the reason why we block ourselves from most of it. forgetting who you are can hurt a lot. great write, Irma. hope all is well. & i wish you a merry christmas with everyone important to you. by the way, i still won't be on a lot, because im moving to some place where i wont be able to access internet.only at school i will be able to get to you,so until i get a lab top, my time is limited for now. take care. ~Always&Forever Lynette

i think you can trancend any mindframe, or persona either imposed upon you or being subconciously explored by you, hope you keep positive Skat, Joe.

a contemporary beat that bristles with punchy lines evoking your " rebel" mood, SKAT... a maverick poet you are.. may i ask if i can do away with the 17 -syllable lines for your SNOW contest as what i did was a modern haiku??.. please clarify.. title is " colors of after dusk snow... thanks for your support!! hope to hear from you! ::) warmest, nette

THANKS EVERYONE :-) so far, I should have entered this poem. As my worst poem ever. I posted this poem, only because I have nothing to share right now. Maybe tomorrow. Thanks for your concern June. yes it might be reality, the beaten part comes from myself. LOVE~ SKAT

Dear SKAT.Sometimes life's like hell on earth.It's full of challenges.But we do have a human endowment that we can use ,the will to live.I have used it and continue to use it,as so have others through time.And the will to live means that, to live, not just to exist.I'm in a vulnerable place myself right now.But I'm not alone. Other's are suffering too and inspire me with their courage not to be beaten.These are strong words,they cut to the heart and hurt for you and all in pain. Love June
