Deviate - Poem by Diamond Jones

These evil demons keep stressing me
I feel I’m about to go insane
People shady, can’t rely on them
Can only depend on myself, no one else to blame

All of these odds against me
Don’t know if I’ma make it
I try to be strong and keep goin
It’s hard, tryin times, keep fakin it

And sometimes I can be my worst enemy
Lettin my troubles get the best of me

But I have to remind myself, though,
Didn’t come all this way to turn, no,
I can’t look back now
Gotta keep movin forward, with my head held high
Always searchin, never getting off track
Diggin deep to find how
Always lettin myself I’ve got to get by

    I like the rhymes and I like your
    enthusiasm in your expressions.
    You are alive, not dead, unlike so
    many other poets.
