I'Ve Become - Poem by Adam Day

I’ve had enough
I’ve been battered and bruised
I’ve felt crippled from failure
I’ve got nothing else to loose

I’ve tried to be
I’ve been the best person I can
I’ve spent time and money
I’ve tried to be a man

I’ve seen many things in my time
I’ve got to learn to act now
I’ve spent time watching the wind chime
I’ve thought for hours trying to figure how

I’ve watched others laugh at me
I’ve seen it time and again
I’ve felt my pride buckle to thee
I’ve got to recover from this, but when?

I’ve been lost for ages
I’ve hidden myself well
I’ve held in all my rages
I’ve cried at times I fell

I’ve beat myself enough
I’ve finally broke free
I’ve learned to be rough
I’ve learned to only be me
