Today - Visitor's Poem

by DonJuan of the WHOLIGAN NATION
(Oakland, CA, USA)

Is it wrong for me to wake up today
and wish the day was over
Am I really all that paranoid if
I choose to look over my shoulder
I have boulders on my shoulders
weighing me down over and over
But still I smile knowing in my heart
this struggle is building a soldier
Yea i walk through the valley of the
shadow of debt cause death is not an option yet
And I live my life 100mph and refuse
to live a life with regrets
I steal some time to try to forget
that life is just a game
And when life makes me pay the cost
I tell the cashier to keep the change
I don't change don't budge don't cry don't beg
even with migraine headaches and a busted up leg
I feel I can make a change as long as
my condition isn't dead
I'm crazy only to an extent the pain
is something that I dread
But I live my life in a dream
that goes away when I crawl into bed
Until that time I'm on the grind
pushing for the final hour
I just needed me some time to vent
and this has given me back my power

Real and packed with feelings
by: Fion

Hi DonJuan, thanks very much for sharing this with my site visitors! There's something real and a sense of determination in your words. Struggles do help us to polish our characters. A big oak tree doesn't grow big in a nice, lovely shelter, it grows big because it weathers through the storms and harshness of life.
