Literal And Figurative - Poem by Joseph DeMarco

Literal and Figurative
Are one in the same thing
I literally have a heartache
From that unused Diamond Ring
I metaphorically kicked myself
and I literally felt pain
And chaotic confusion
from the disdain in my brain
Metaphorical and Literal
There's really no Change
People create their sickness
From a wide number and range
Of solemn doubts and fears
From their guilt and their rage
they literally eat themselves alive
Like a snake in a cage
Literal and Figurative
We have to see what's true
there is no difference from
what's old and what's new
It's all in your head
The fat that you wear
Is protection from pain
Even if you say you don't care
It's all in your head
The cancer you grew
Is your bodies way of telling you
You don't like what you do
It's all in your head
Your throat that is sore
Is because you close your mouth
When you really want to roar
Let it out...Know Thy Self
And you’ll always be whole
because there is no difference
Between mind, body, and soul
