Oh Lamen Self - Poem by Justine Olsen

Oh lamen self
Why do I do fault on thee
I think I am capable of these things
To discover I am weak

I am ready, I declare
Though fate will be told halt
I push through direction
And bring this on myself

Pains me so deep
Physicality is no bother
Yet that by which I do not fall
Will only help me to stand taller

And the taller I command
The smaller I am inside
For thy surface is of no resemblance
To the monster that I hide

That of greed, hunger
Mortality and fate
That which brings me down, twists me in two
And allows my heart to break
