Self Poems

Personal poetry about the way you feel about yourself

This area is for personal poetry: poems about yourself and your feelings about who you are. Poems here focus on identity, ego, self confidence, insecurities and personality. For readers it's a chance to get to know the poet better and for writers it's an opportunity to analyse themselves by poetic means. The self poems category encourages the poet to lay themselves bare for all to read about, it can be both a frightening and empowering experience.

as i stood watch.. yet long before..
a child.. that.. that i was.. no more..
hung from high.. obscuring sight..
weighted down by bloody spite..
waivered not.. absent of fright..
for it was drawn forever tight..
mothers rapture.. mothers mite..
her sickle.. her hammer.. my plight..
ablaze with freedoms fiery light..
quashed by realities so benight..
longing.. no longer outright..
ants marching.. a mindless trite..
stasi patrolling again this night..
as i stood watch.. yet long before..

monday morning cold outside
staying in bed under the covers
where i can hide
family sit noisily at the breakfast table
normal as can be
total opposite to me
i am not hungry

cereal toast tea
im off to school
see you all later
skin so white getting paler
i excist in other peoples problems
i walk in their shoes
deppression, sadness,rejection,rage
hate, jealousy,abuse and shit
i need to wallow in it
i fell neither dead nor alive
noyone to confide in
my state of mind

Written by Easydrops
My heart cries out like a fallen tree
grown with aspiration,
but never reached its full potential.
Struck down and burnt is where you find me.
 
Like the sun I have risen and gone down again,
but my sun rays have become empty,
and my warmth lost its warmth.
And this time lost in time makes it all feel the same.
 
And if this life's become a melody,
will there be someone to remember me?
I feel like all that there is left for me
consists of jitteriness and tragedy

Just wondering y do i hate welding i am good at it

Just wondering y i haven't won won the lottery

Just wondering y i haven't killed anyone yet

Just wondering if i could get away with it

Just wondering if u give a shit

Just wondering y an old man has to lie

Just wondering how long til he dies

Just wondering how to squash a fly

Industrial accidents happen everyday

Paris the lord said the young insane man

The space of a breath
Is hardly enough
To spew out
The whirlpool
Of words
Swirling within me,
All the syllables,
Meters, measures,
Rhythms and rhymes
Beating their
Butterfly wings
Against my ribcage,
Fluttering, yearning,
Aching for
Freedom…
But the space of a breath
Is not enough
To open up
Their dungeon doors,
To throw aside
The reservations
Blocking my
Expressions from
Realization gained
In gazing on the
Light of day
In the form of
Inky words scrawled across
Crumpled notebook...

The space of a breath
Is hardly enough
To write
All the words
That could
Be said,
Or should
Be said...
 
But perhaps
It's enough
To pass
The fleeting dream
That could
Be thought,
Or should
Be thought...
 
For without
Our words
Our thoughts
Are all
We have.

black rose your beauty is painful
your thorns cut into my flesh
i couldnt help you i couldnt save you
i watched your petals wilt away
i watched you suffer
i was the only one who cared
i was the only one who tryed to save you
you wilted and dyed all alone
your petal slowly wilted
from beautiful to nothing
you let your self go
you took away your own pain
oh black rose you beautiful like no other
why did you do it
why did you leave me
why did u have to let them get to you
black rose your beauty is painful
your thorns sharp as...

Written by Ryuenjin Shadow1600
It has been more than nine years
Since i last saw you
Living
Every night the image haunts me
In my dreams
I see you alive and healthy
But it is only a dream
I know you are dead
But i can't accept that you died
In my mind
Where i keep my cherish memories
Secrets
Beliefs
I see you walking
I try to give you my hand
But you go right though me
As i chase after you the farther away i go from reality
I follow you until you stop
You look at me with those
Soulless eyes
Then you leave

DU Poetry : Poems about Self : You and Your Self Awareness

Published on 23rd April 2014 6:32pm
Written by gayboy_ratedR
A perfect family
A mother a father
A son and a daughter
They can't believe
How much they've conceived
Lying right through there teeth
I know I'm that son
Lying to everyone
When the day is done
He's in his room
Sticking knifes to his skin
And telling everyone he's just
Naturally thin
During the day he's got to hide
Because he know no one will
Be on his side
When he tells them instead of girls
He likes guys
He lies to himself saying he'll
Tell them tomorrow
He knows they'll accept him
But it will still upset...

Written by Miss G Ghoulie
it's time to face facts
my synapses have collapsed
from emotional shrap-
null and void
circuits glitch
causing digital twitch
pink slips from loose lips
paired with forked tongues
that sway then switch
gilded in silver
the opulent whip
shrieking
"get it together-
bitch!"

Written by Ryuenjin Shadow1600
Through my whole life
I have been bullied
I lost many loved ones
I seen others die for me
When will the pain end?
Without the people who
Support me
I would had lost years ago
With more and more tragedies
That happen
The harder it is
To find a reason to fight back
Fighting back
The pain and aguish
I am fighting my humanity
As time goes on
It is not caring
What happens to others
Slowly fading away
All i can think is
It is time to go
But the harder i try to let go
The longer...

My heart is broken yet i cannot weep
for this secret safe i'll have to keep
A fresh scar; raw and just as deep
as darkness in me will slowly seep

Written by Failure By Design MichaelMorgue
i hate everything about myself
but yet i love it all
the scars have healed the tears have dried
I guess I made it through
but everything I started with
I knew I was going to lose
my heart I gave with roses
to a common fucking whore
my mind I gave to drugs and drink
and barely left the floor
my compassion went to worthless worms
that squandered it in days
my happiness left me for a using bitch
when i refused to stay
but through everything i have survived
ive learned a little more

Written by Leonidas Day Gonzo69
Six inch lines with Dad--
Good conversations had.
We get closer to death while
Getting closer to each other.
The world may see this as  
Abuse but we call it bonding.
This is the life I’ve learned to live--
Fights, drugs, sex, pleasure, and  
Adrenaline. I learned the legs of wine
When I was twelve and how to seduce a
Stripper before eighteen. My soul turned  
Black and I can't change that. All I can
Do is live the only way I know how to--
Hard, fast, trippy, dark, epic, and romantic.
I tiptoe on the edge of life and death and...

Walls surround every move
I have nothing I need to prove
I'm who I want to be now that I believe
Gates keep the whole world out
My mind is my protection
A prison, a shield
My castle my definition
I took the darkest parts of me
I've used them as my shield
Now it doesn't hurt to feel
My heart concealed
Slowly every piece that hurt
They're fading from my mind
All the crazy thoughts I've had
They've made me blind
I will keep fighting on
I know I will succeed
Keep climbing against the rising dawn
Keep...

So now I'm lost so far away
But there's nowhere else I'd rather be
Here I will forever stay
I've never ever felt so free
I've gone so far I can never turn back
I've lost my mind to me
Healed every tear sealed every crack
Hidden every key
I've broken free
There are cities and castles
Beyond gates and walls
There are raging battles
And masquerade balls
I can live free
There are worlds full of magic
Worlds ruled by science
Some have love
Others defiance
You can't tell me I'm...
