Let Me Die…

Let me die…

This life of mine is like a lie,
Every moment I do not try,
I feel like an empty shell.

Let me die…

If I cant make you laugh,
Is it right I gift you tears?
Make your joys disappear.

Let me die…

How is this me?
This is not who I want to be.
This is acting, reality.

Let me die…

Let me die, and be reborn,
Like a phoenix from the ashes.
A stronger, better me…

Share joys, not sorrow,
Not living on time borrowed,
A positive joy
ful me…

Let me die…

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
