Self-Esteem - Poem by David DeSantis

Misfiring bearings.
She power’s my train.
I have no boundaries.
Like a moon,
I was meant to wane.

I am my own Caesar.
And nearly as vain.
These misfiring bearings,

As a nerve,
You lie to the brain.

    not sure about the vein-ity issue.. Was Caesar very veiny? That must be why he bled to death so fast after getting stabbing in the back! but a fun poem on the life, nonetheless... -c (Report) Reply

    'Boundry-less' indeed, this piece certainly proves you to be and any vainity you may indulge in is probably justified...perhaps you would consider Caesar as a 'nom de plume'? ;) (Report) Reply

    Perhaps my favorite of your poems thus far. Well structured. Elequent. Effortless flow.

    Well done. ;)
