Characteristically Poem Example

Me, Myself and Critique

Allow me a moment to deconstruct,,
Every wall characteristically set up.
And all the fabricated stories from corrupt
Individuals; Residuals of a past, 
I broke through and shattered like sugar-glass. 

Let me tell you; I'm not invincible. 
My personality is not intrinsical. 
My body nor mind isn't irresistible. 
Sometimes my heart and my head cosmically clash,
Emotion covers my face like a rash.

I'm a disastrously lousy liar; 
I can't hold piss for pounds if its worth a few pence.
In debates I can never just "sit on the fence", 
I need to say my bit no matter how intense
The opposite argument may make sense.

I like to drink like most twenty year olds, 
Though sometimes I drink more than my emotions hold,
And sometimes I let those emotions slip in tears 
And open my heart to all my sorrows and fears.
But god forbid I should have a pained heart. 

God forbid I should live a life of youth,
And drink from it all the human traits of life's juice.
When happiness and suffering go hand in hand
I still bleed love and loyalty from every gland... 
...Because I believed in those sacred fruits.

Well just because I build a barricade,
And paint on a brave face to replace my true self
Don't categorically place me on that shelf;
Among alcoholics, arrogant clowns and thieves,
Who handed you the gavel to judge me?

Though all of this stuff may file under "Me",
Don't think I wouldn't move sun and earth, part the sea,
To bring to you what you hold dearest of the dear. 
That I wouldn't hunt through fire-filled chasms, your fears. 
Because, what is love without a few tears?
