Anguish Of A Struggling Poet

I'm overwhelmed with disappointment
If only I were a better person
Stronger intellectually
To identify what is wrong with me
I used to think I was enough
People have continued to bring me down
Lower than my lowest point
I forgive but I don't forget
The pain hurts too bad
And telling me to get over it
Makes it worse
It's not as easy as it sounds
I ask God everyday for patience
Guidance to lead me on a better path
To be a man who deserves respect
Who knows that what he does is right
Because it's what my heart is saying
All I hear is its echoes through my veins
Little earthquakes pulsating through my wrists
Telling me that I know what I have to do
I must be better, work harder, get stronger
