Attention Hog

I'm not the best person in the world.

I lost myself the day I started lying to everyone.

Relationships died and families were torn apart.

I didn't mean for all of this to happen.

I just wanted to live my life, but later I found out that it's never just about one person.

I put on an act for years trying to be someone I'm not.

The attention I got from being good was wonderful.

But as the years past, I got older. I later found that people didn't give me the attention I so desired.

The rebelling teenager sat in after starting college.

Yes,4.0 student, but something was missing.

The touch of someone's love.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
