Forgotten By Society - Poem by ashley ellison

Forgotten by society,
Believed to be a monster,
Forgotten by destiny,
Since I was a youngster,

Forgotten by life,
In a cruel unusual way,
Forgotten and forgotten,
Day by day.

No on my side,
Everyone's against me.
Cursed by everyone,
And no wants to bless me.

Seems like they were perfect,
To throw the first stone.
Shattered every dream,
And broke every last bone.

I want to run and hide,
But I'm exposed at last.
They see my sins
As if I was a Cinemax.

God give me strength
So I can lift myself up,
And please God, please,
Never let me give up.

The world resents me,
But your love for me is the same.
So forget the world,
I'm gonna do this in your name.

I'm gonna do this right
For You and my family,
And also to prove
I can be what I cannot be.

I'm a soldier at heart.
I come up when I go down.
I keep my head over the water
Because I refuse to drown.

Other people's criticism
No longer means a thing,
Because, just like me,
They are only human beings.

So please God,
Help me on this journey
And help me overcome
The obstacles before me.
