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.

captivating creation
exquisite piece of art
sculpted by my hands
these gems of my heart
granite words carved
from the bedrock of my soul
my essence seeps thru
my fingertips as i mold
every thought, every emotion
sits on the potter's wheel
to be shaped and crafted
into something ideal
conceptualized
every tingling sensation
each beat of my hearts
gives life to creation
blood racing to my brain
for thought detonation
transmiting...

I've realized i don't need you
I don't need the pain
You turned away
made it clear
You don't care about me
Its so clear now
You never wanted a child like me
A self harmer
An emo
You say it's my fault
That i deserved
the things done to me
I deserved to get beaten
I deserved to be starved
Deserved to be raped
To be abandoned
When i left you weren't there
When i needed your help
you denied me
But when u needed me i was always there
I was there even when you threw t hose things my...

As the world turns
Somehow I'm standing still
My head is spinning
But Some how I'm standing still
People rush past me
Coming at me
Like bullets From a Gatling gun
It feels like the world is out to get me
Target number one
As the world turns
somehow I'm standing still
You can imagine how I feel
It just don't seem real
I feel like this most of the time
Ok, every day
I feel dizzy
Light on my feet
Maybe I should spin with them
It might make me complete
To get involved
To move around on my feet
Concrete boots...

I built it and repaired it
So I destroyed it
Run from me
Inside you bleed
Like my need
Show your truth
Speak to me
I heard you were lost
So I dropped my tools
To find you
I heard you yell
So I came to find you
It took my time
All for what
You make me
Sting me wit what you were
Found by a fear
A turn from home
Run to your past
Your childhood comfort
Is jealousy to me
I've never known your safety
I dance with myself
I took refuge inside
The only place he couldn't hurt me
I feel nothing...

I'm finding myself in my pen
I read my books and it's like a friend
Speaking to me when I need help
Searching without a expectation
I'm full of hate and love at the same time
I'm tired and sleep doesn't seem to satisfy
I'm old inside living forever help me
Trying to decide how long my time machine
Can keep me in repetition
I do not have time to waste
A length of distance in time is shortened
From the backside fighting to stay alive
Daily in my head
Stress is too simple to explain the feeling
This is different
This is a show and...

Written by The Refined Poet therefinedpoet
The sun shines warmly
Life seems worth living
Sadness, it prevails

The rain falls gently
Life seems forgiving
Sadness yet rules

The winds blow softly
Life seems to matter
Sadness covers me

The birds glide in the air
Life seems gladder
Sadness overwhelms me

Friends show care
Family gives love
Sadness marches on

Money in hand
Health is fine
Sadness won't leave

Joy stops by
Happiness checks in
Sadness still wins

Written by The Refined Poet therefinedpoet
I am drowning with no lifeguard on call.
My ship broken asunder, strong rains fall.
Lost is seas of despair, no shoreline seen.
Will I land safely, escaping these streams?

Emotions hold me hostage on life's flight.
Paralyzing me at this tortured height.
Poised to decimate me if I fight back,
At this breathless altitude, can't react.

Thoughts crowd around as footballers huddled;
Giving no strategies for this troubled.
Oh wretched that I am: touched down by these ills!
A drowning hostage on a football field.

Written by BlueBeastGirl
Boxes stacked so high they almost touch the indoor sky
Brown in color with colored words and you're left wondering why
Why do I have to go out on my own?
Why is no amount of kindness is being shown?
I sigh as a lady comes to me with a book I was in love with once
I try not to cry as my books get sold to someone who looks like a dunce
I try to hold it together but I know
I have to let my precious things and books go
Tears build up so quickly
As my things are sold swiftly
I cry a little but they don't know
How many memories of lonely nights...

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

Published on 22nd October 2014 6:25pm
Written by naathalie___
The way that I feel lonely is the way the moon does.
It is forced to see the earth every night &
it sees the people experiencing new
things together. Loving one another.
But the moon can't help but be happy
for them even if it's miserable all on it's own.
The truth is that everyone needs that
one person in their lives to bring them
joy, but the moon doesn't have that,
although one time it did. But it knows
it is beautiful & it shines bright in
the night standing with pride.
The moon knows it is special & some ...

Commemorative meal for a date
long ago when before midnight
a lusty lung filled with air
and screamed a wail into the world
a girl again five of them now
two died and this one would live
most time wishing she would cease
to exist or be another real piglet
She dreamed of lands faraway
where mothers hugged and fathers
smiled, no fists shown or thrown
She prayed to sprout wings
Today I wished for candles
to blow and make my wish come true
a midday meal with those uncaring
just another day nothing special
Tonight...

Written by RosieTheGothicKat
he loves it when my eyes roll back
as he chokes me out
him unable to stop
till I'm about to pass out
but have no doubts
cause its all about
the sadistic need to please
cause he wants to keep me
make me need it
getting a chance to hit
not afraid to leave a bit
on my compliant pale body
so lush and ready for attack
but i always give this treatment back

Twisted and broken.
Beaten and Bruised.
She took to the bottle.
Nothing she could do.
But cry every once in a while.
She lies to everyone around her.
She dies inside when no ones watching.
Sick of losing this pitiful game.
She takes another pill in hopes that it would kill all her demons.
But they just scream louder, "YOU DESERVE THIS"
She cries and screams against her pillow.
Clawing and scratching at the place where her heart should. be
So hallow.
“God, Give me a chance”.
She begs and she pleads.
“One chance that's I'll need.”...

This shell happens to be made of glass,
And skin tight.
Just because you can see me,
Doesn't make me alright.
As you look at me,
My heart beating fast.
My chest slamming hard and heavy against the glass.
To take one step forward,
Is a slam in past.
Shallow cuts and heavy heart ache,
Form this cast.
Fixing and breaking simultaneously,
I think of all the things Iv'e tried to bury.
Lost in the sands of time,
And icy analytical thoughts.
The desert of my mind is,
where Iv'e grown hot,
blooded and hearted, melting...

What if I told you that I have scabs on my eyelids, and a mental cigarette on hiatus for when I accept my infection? Im waiting for my whimpers to creep into you like lightning. Imm stretching my mouth like the cuts on the backs of your fingers. If I could, Id describe to you that relapse is a second wind, and it aptly makes reality that much more like the stars. I know the evil in sadness, and I know the dust that often rises in claustrophobia. I know black walls when I see them. Im thinking about doleful fragments of light and which disillusioned frequency I might belong to. I wish I could...

When I Look Into The Mirror,
I don't See me anymore,
I see a Fake,Hollow Smile and a Tear Stained Face,
Everything In that Damn Mirror Looks so Out of Place,
It's Me,But It Isn't Me,
My Eyes, My Scars, My Smile,
Sometimes I Just Stand there,
Looking at Myself,
Looking at My Scars,
My Hollow Empty Smile,
I don't See Myself Anymore,
Some Nights I Curl into a Ball and Cry Into Front of The Mirror while Watching Blood Drip From My Wrists,
My Smile is Diffrent,
Hollow and Empty,
I don't See Me Anymore

Written by Sam. fizzykandikid
There is no worse feeling then realizing someone that you hate,
even more than yourself controlled so much of you for so long.
He took so much more than I thought,
My trust the love I had for my body, and my freedom.
He controlled my entire life, even my relationships. Even though I never spoke to him again.
He made me hate the skin on my body that his fingers once touched.
I can still feel the bruises he left me, the way he held me down as he took everything I refused to give him.
The parts of my body that he stole from me I now hate.
I mourn the loss of my...
