Losing It - Poem by Criscentia Jessica Setiadi

I no longer am the truth
They have been taking my youth
All the burdens and thoughts
All the miseries I sought

The greater the amount
The better was I bound
By the fake glory
Sinking all my worries

Soon emerge, I know
You reap what you sow
Yet before, I would've run
Under the flowers, under the sun

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this peom just 3 days after my 25th birthday. I realized how I wanted a new kind of life, a new story. Yet, something I've got to leave behind in order to follow the new path. My body clock is ticking, I need to make a quick decision.

    I like the style of this poem; with a limited number of words you could create a universal theme applicable for every human being. Your rhyme scheme is a mazing. (Report) Reply
