Be Good - Poem by Faith Duston
Emptiness rattles me to my core.
Have you ever felt
The need to be
The aching desire to just
The feeling that lingers even when
The feeling that you're missing something that was never meant to be lost in the first place
As if feeling less of a person
run away from
There was a remedy
Elsewhere, waiting to be found,
It's all delusion
There is no cure for the heartache that is brought on from feeling mediocre.
Trying desperately to meet
the standards That
Trying to find a way
That never come.
Wanting to let it all out, to feel something other than less than enough.
You toil on, working to please others that may never be complacent
Numbness starts to set in as you strain
Your heartbeat becomes
A steady rhythm,
The memory of feeling alive,
Like the sunlight at dusk
Begins to wane
