Not For You, Not For Anyone, Just…. - Poem by Missy Lynn

I am done
Done with pain
Finished with abuse

I am tired
Tired in my soul
Exhausted emotionally

I am alone
Alone and happy
By myself and no one else

I am drained
Drained of all feeling
Weak but somehow surviving

I am here
Here and strong
Now at this time and fierce

I am confident
Confident that I need no other
Sure that I do not require you nor anyone else

I am myself
Myself with out denial
Me, I am all I have

I am fighting
Fighting for peace
Struggling for what is right

This and no longer will
I bow to those
Who deserve it not.

    the consistent form in each stanza, the variation, repetition and embellishment of the theme of each emotion give this piece a lot of dignity and credibility for me. (Report) Reply
