My New Home

My New Home long poem

Uploaded by Zanele Angel

I feel all alone
In a dark place with no sign of life
Sign of life being happiness and love
The dark place is in my head
Cause I have created this place for myself to escape the reality
The reality that I am no good
What my family repeatedly thinks of
That my friends will always do better than me
When I am reminded of that
I go home, home is in my head, home is dark
But at least I am alone
Why would I remind myself that I am a failure?
I sit in darkness at my house
Negativity keeps ringing in my head
It rang repeatedly that one day I couldn’t take it anymore
I found myself saying Amen and things were never the same anymore
I am not alone
I am in a beautiful place with sign of life
Sign of life being happiness and love
The beautiful place is in my heart
Cause I created this place for myself to escape the darkness in my head
My heart stores my life treasures
My goals, dreams and aspirations
For as long as I have these treasures in my heart, I am good
I will beat any odds for as long as the man that created my new home, keeps it beating for me

Within the imagination I am content to live This is my stay I see how plenty, how ever-expanding it is The ‘All’ a rich array Of ever-rotating colors with which to paint And never fade away This is my stay

My Ms

My Ms short poem

I mawkishly effeminate sentiment, memories plucked from wood and field merged in a sentiment of unutterable sadness and compassion microscopic minuteness of eye, misgivings of grave kinds mockery crept into your tone, molded by the austere hand of adversity moments
