Treasure Island

Glaedr the poet

(December 1988 / Born in California but my 'Homeland' will always be Missouri)

I am (emotion)


I am tired
tired of the walls closed around me
tired of blindness when I wish to see
I am scared
scared of the love that will never come
scared of where the darkness is from
I am angry
angry at truths that are perceived wrong
angry at the uselessness of a happy song
I am sad
sad for those left behind
sad for the happiness they cannot find
I am confused
confused with the madness of this world
confused with the life into which I'm hurled
I am helpless
helpless to keep my innocence
helpless of it to make any sense
I am dead
dead to the world around me
dead to the people, who refuse see

    Hi Glaedr the Poet,

    i like what you have written, but i do find it a tad depressing. I urge you to continue with this poem until you reach the point where you are crying. I walked down your road once before, and today i stand proud when i say, 'I am... TRUTH.'

    it's who you are. it's what you'll live. it's what you have to give (Report) Reply

    It is a bit depressing - but hey, that's poetry, eh? The mood and tone and structure are all very supporting of your main theme and express your (emotion) very powerfully. Good work! (Report) Reply

    Hmm…very interesting. I pretty much admire the way you describe how failing life can be in the way of a poem. Love it. Knocks in much sense. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
