Who Am I Today? - Poem by Rosie Bourget

Why should I bother to live another day
When everything I did is wrong anyway?
I don't know who I am today
Or who I was then
The only thing I can think and say
I'm a broken woman
Who never had a real man!

I have been through so much
I thought I wouldn't do much
It's amazing I made it through
Even though my dreams did not come true
I am surprised I pulled through
I tried to make it day by day
Hoping things will get better one day!

To keep myself alive
I laughed, I smiled
I cried from the inside
Since I was seventeen
My mom told me to be on my own
While I thought I was a teen
She said I was grown
So my whole life has been a dream!

Surrounded by so many
I always feel so lonely
Just as the earth goes through seasons
Life is a lesson
And I have learned it very well
While I was facing the world of hell
That's why today
With so many things to say
I can tell it's a tale!

Topic(s) of this poem: loneliness, me, me against myself
