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.

But then,
I woke up.

And everything slipped away.
-
Letters and symbols
and colours collide
slipping between my fingers
turning my piss to wine.
Through the thickness
of the fog
crowding the depths
of its dark.

I fall away.. Fade away..
For this one, this..
precious moment
I finally feel free
you'll never grasp my soul again.
never witness the light overcome the darkness
never embrace the beauty of where I roam content.

I let go
I let the life sink into my skin

I had a plan for you
I have even cancelled my psychotherapy session
I felt ready and fresh to start again
 I can't be prettier
Because I thought you love me as I'm
You said you love my poems
you said you love my honesty
If I only I haven't read your messages to her
today.
Now I want to run some where, anywhere
Unfortunately no refuge for me
I have been following you every where
I lost contact with ....
My self.

You'll never know my struggle unless I tell you my story
But you'll never kno my story cause I keep it to myself
My tears you'll never see but they fall constantly
The sadness in my heart is always masked with a smile
But you would never know cause I wear that smile proud
My shoes you couldn't walk in cause sometimes I struggle myself
Sometimes it's hard to even wake up and even take a step
But I'm going to keep stepping cause life won't hold me down
And I'm going to keep smiling cause that's what keeps me around.....

tick, tick, tick, tick, tick...
What next
where to
what to do
who to answer to
The what do I have to do
pseudo responsibility cure
to snowballing emotions
built on mad musings
Of a future
on a past
not really so pleasant
a rose tint to bloodstained glass
tick, tick... tick...
you...
don't have to do anything
everything's chilled here
at your own pace
But, but,
I need to be doing!
doing doing doing!
I can't keep screwing up my life!
How's that working for you?

I feel like, I've been dead drunk in my illusive
thoughts.
My reasoning, hanging in a middling
assessment of creativity
Gosh! I yawn for pioneering monuments of
history
Overwhelmed by hallucinations; this dreamer
lives in his dreams
Reality far from my fetch susceptible conceive
It makes me feel like a myopic thinker whose
visions bounce back on a dead end wall
Inundent in a peril of brain decay
Lying amort, downstream the dejection of
indegenious thoughts
Ignorance submerged my little knowledge
I'd taken pills of limatations, I need...

I look in the mirror and I'm not sure of what I find
satisfying.
I'm never satisfied mentally nor physically.
I look at the person staring back at me and I wonder:
" Am I really what people tell me?".
Look at every angle, every curve, every imperfection and yet I still don't know what to think.
I sink deep into my thoughts trying to decide if they are ever right.
Am I really lovely?,
Am I really ugly?,
Am I stupid?,
Am I useless?,
Am I worthless?,
Am I intelligent?,
Am I heaven - sent?,
Tell me what am I?.
I don't think I'm insecure...

Have you ever cried so hard that you began to shake?
Well, I'll tell you, it isn't pleasant.
It's quite a drag, really.
Granted, sobbing normally isn't a good experience,
but when you do, why do you have to shake?
It's like adding insult to injury.
I mean, you already look like a nut for crying why not just start shaking too?
Science says it's due to adrenaline,
but I think it's because it's evident something is about to break;
snap.
Ever sit on a chair with one weak leg?
Remember how it started shaking a little...

Ice-Man Pt.3: Metamorphosis
Bigger mind capacity and courageous audacity.
My bigger and buffer arms that can stretch as far as our platinum galaxy.
Facial hair black as burnt hay on a hot day
Facin' futuristic problems as a Black man in alot of ways.
Responsibilities, courage, and free as a floatin' grey glacier on a freezy river.
The Ice-Man is me who can help the homeless on cool nights with their freezy shivers.
Just like Marvel Comics witta poetic flow I'm droppin'.
Strong as platinum Ice-Man with this metamorphosis...

My Beast is bold and brash.
So everyday I overload bowls to cash.
Beholden to eat folded over sheep.
I'm righteous to fight for this
So if conformists spin armor to blitz
By Midas?
I'll steal the Golden Fleece!
I spree cold tracks because it doesn't
Please me to hold back
In the fucking least!
Ain't no lease on my beliefs like Holy Roman Priests.
I release Life because my spirit-
Overspent!
Peace to the 5%.
Diverse intent in my depictions
My prescription is changing emotional conditions.
Devour sheeple,...

waking up too early
listening to the soughing
of the wind meeting the eaves
and the distant crashing waves

fondly thinking of solitude
to rest physically and within
far away from the bustling crowds
of frantic breadwinners

and then thought of waiting stacks
of things to do bills to pay
words I thought I haven't shared
turning to my side closing my eyes

sighing
I hope for slumber
at least it is a respite from feelings
that I should be somewhere happier.

       Descriptive misconception
 The first time I ever tried it I was in 5th grade
  I saw all the older kids doing it after school
  It was so scary my first time  A few kids said they would show me how to do it I just wanted to fit in so I gave in to the peer pressure.
   My parents always told me to never to do this
They told me it was very harmful to my body and when I got older I would pay the price
  I would do it here and there  and when I saw my friends doing it
  Eventually I started getting my own...

Dear My Paranoid Mind,

                           Please don't be like this, now;
             All you ever do is hide in there and cry;
Remember the times of careless wonder?
        All those paths chosen, full of danger and fright?
                                           Nothing to fear;
            Only unfound secrets and little things,
Instead of anxious existance,
                              And unbuilt wings.

Allow me to welcome myself back
After a long absence from the pen
I'm taking it up again
And sending out a verbal attack

To all those who opposed me
They clearly didn't notice me
Scribbling all these back-up rhymes
So I'm going to lay it down like so many times before

This is the rebirth of Cellar Door...

I won't surrender to suicide, suicide is weak,
I will not be silenced I will raise my voice and speak,
I won't surrender to failure I will succeed,
I'm gonna fight for my life no matter how much I bleed,

I'm passed the point of no return,
for strength and salvation I yearn,
I won't surrender to alcohol,
I'll rise above the downfall,

I don't need alcohol or drugs,
I will surrender only to love,
I won't surrender to my enemies I'm stronger than them,
I will not give in to fear I will not be condemned,

I won't...

how many times will I cry,
in just a days time,
how many feelings will I push aside,
till the day I die,
the feeling of,
love,
hurt,
fear,
pain,
how much can I take,
before I finally break,
what will u do for me,
once u finally come to,
how many times do I have to talk about the rape,
the way he grabbed me,
the way I screamed and cried,
the way my mother let it happen,
how broken I was after it,
how broken I am now,
how many times will I have nightmares,
will this pain ever stop,
will it even go away,

Uh. . .
I'm not pregnant.
I'm actually bloated from my period.
Kind of the exact opposite of being pregnant.
Don't ya think?
But yeah anyway, thanks alot lady.
For the serious confidence boost.
That did wonders for my low self-esteem.
You're not exactly a super model yourself, you know?
But whatever, I'm not pregnant if you were wondering.
Consider you (obviously) just love assuming stuff.
About a person that you don't even know.
I wasn't trying to make small talk with you.
I don't even know you.
My boyfriend was trying to make...
