Joshua Crumpton Poems
I'll never surrender, forever fighting til the end. Life often buries my face in the dirt, yet I stand to my feet and try again. At times the world is cold and harsh, things never seem to go the right way. I must march out of the darkness and never again let myself fall astray.
As I gaze at the mirror that hangs, what is this that I see. As I stare, I wonder how this person looking back is who I've come to be. I look into those eyes, in which seem to only behold sadness.
Riddles of the mind, riddles of the heart.Sympathy is blind, but i guess it's a start. Dreary windows of a soul tainted, left so impure.Is it possible for a demon to be sainted? I'm not really sure. Impulsive actions and agony seems to be the toll.Drenched and weary, destruction of my very soul. Discontent with all the masks that I use, to cover the real me.I'm pitiful in this darkness, yet I can't seem to flee.

I'll never surrender, forever fighting til the end. Life often buries my face in the dirt, yet I stand to my feet and try again.
At times the world is cold and harsh, things never seem to go the right way.
I must march out of the darkness and never again let myself fall astray.
I'm far from perfect, so many bad choices I tend to repeat.
But continue with my head held high, for I will never accept defeat.
Still the past memories and negativity slice through me, I lie bleeding with my fragile heart tossed upon the ground.
Somehow I must remain positive, ...
