The Strength You Seek


My strength seems to be the corner stone
In which you rest on
But you don’t seem to understand
The strength you see in only a mirage
That I have built

Others, This world, your self
Are fooled, or have fooled your self
So you don’t realize the man, the person
You gain your strength from
Needs strength himself

Do you need this Mirage, reassurance?
How can I show you these cracks
Which are widening as we speak
Do I need to scream, shed a tear
Fall at your feet for you to see

You weaken me which each breath
You cripple me with your issues
I myself struggle each day with
The worlds torment

This act can not last long
The day will come for words to be spoken
Or actions viewed and hopefully
My plight is seen

Everyone seems at ease not to ask
Everyone seems at ease to continue on
With this manifestation

All I ask is help my self

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
