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.

I've been gone for a while
Motivation was what I lack
My hands just couldn't put the words on paper
But I was finally able to come back
Poetry is an art
A way to express
When life is at its most high
Or when it's a hot mess
Sometimes I feel that I can do better
Too worried about what people would say
But they're my thoughts, my feelings
I need to get them out my way
You may love me
You may hate me
I shouldn't let it be a bother
Because you ain't me
I know I'm far from perfect
And a bit of a sexual freak
One thing I won't...

There ain't much to say,
I am the way I am.
Nothing can change me,
Nothing can tame,
Nothing in hell can contain me.
Know there's no pain that can tear me down,
There's no plane that I can't learn how to fly.
Tell me, what I got to do to get through to you that there's nothing that you can do that will ever change me.
Yeah, I know I'm crazy,
But I honestly don't care.
Yeah, I'm off my rocker
Yeah, I'm going bonkers
Yeah, I got some Slim Shady in me.
Please do share why you got a problem with me I'll just sit here and pretend to care....

White,purple and blue ruffles lay in between my fingers while I hug my comforter and all my feelings with it.Today I decided I'm over you.I will not be the beast,I will not be this bitter bitch any longer. I stretch my legs and get out of bed.
The early morning sun is screaming to come inside to greet me with it's life. Sun beams bounce off the mirror, I caught a glimpse of myself. It's funny I haven't looked ay myself for a long time. Now here I stand, I look old, I look broken.I love the smell and feel of my Apple Blossom and Mango Body wash. A trip to the salon then into my new...

Running through my head like if
Running from something scary

Not sure what is chancing me
Have not wanted to see

It's almost like I feel it stalk me
just waiting for its time when it
Can take me down


Am I the hunted or prey
I am trying to stay out of my
head so I don't get sucked in
With no way out

As I sit here and try to figure out what
The hell is wrong with me, my mind is
Racing almost out of it. I feel like my mind
Is trying to go somewhere else, I feel sad
A lot, my world feels like it is spinning
I am scarred a lot and feel depressed


What the hell is wrong with me
Am I going crazy or out of my mind
I feel like no one understands what's
Going on

Am I crazy and I out of my mind
I scream for help but in my head

I remember a time when
I used to give a shit,
a time
when stuff used to matter.

But  you learn
to dig,

find some truths,

look up the skirt of humanity.

I've seen time flow before my eyes
too pussy to end it
so i'll indulge it
i'll smoke it
i'll pop it
and drink it,
never enlighten it.

There's just too much truth to ignore,

and truth is the
ultimate full stop.

The darkness begins to creep within the room
Silence starts to become to much
I sit with my chin upon my knee's within the lightest corner
Watching the darkness come closer
Unable to move, unable to speak
It is soon reaching me, I back up even more within the corner
I freeze completely now as the Darkness surrounds me
I try to scream, yet nothing comes forth.
No sound only silence.

Tears begin to flow down upon my cheeks
I burry my face within my knees, holding them close
The silence seems to break as I begin to hear whispers...

Heaven and hell I am betwixt,
Floating along this river Styx,

Its icy waters silence my tongue,
Its fiery embers burn my lungs,

Light is fading, darkness abound,
In its depths I’ll surly drown,

Conflicting thoughts of a maddened youth,
Where lies are sweet and bitter the truth,

Planets fall when stars align,
Knotted threads of fate intertwine,

Burden the speaker of these fragile words,
They are but chains on flightless birds,

Fight fire with fir, the world will burn; consumed in its...

You chain smoking

Keep it real
Real

You and I;
We're going

Change the

Written by lyricalpoem5
I feel so lost
Help me find my way out, out
Really don't know what to do
Need some inspiration
No complication
Get me to the bottom line
Finding me, finding you when you are lost
Lost in the crowd of thoughts
Lost in the next direction we want to go
Lost in the heart....... that there we may find nothing, nothing
When we are lost, we are found again

If I would stop
and let my body rest,
 
My tears would
only thunder
innocence lost,
 
With my mind
plundering the confusion,
and intense sadness;
 
A beast un-blessed
by any human heart,
 
And if I opened
and let the victims run,

Would they?
 
Or would they
only stand
and guess the thought,
 
In my innocence found,
I would only cry,
  
And let them
tear the heavens apart.

Stabbed myself
removed my beating heart
Buried deep

Far from me
Far from you

Amongst the writhing egos
In this crowd of our future
I whisper hints of madness
Looking for no earthly cure

Living each day with hope
Tainted by tears on my lashes
Alone within my unseen wall
Isolated as time slowly passes

Tick tock

I dont think I was ever supposed to feel this alone

Trapped inside my mind with these evil thoughts
 I try break free but instead they just break me

Constantly trying to save myself from these murky waters
 but I continue to swim futher

So exhausted from saving everyone else, I can't save myself...

The wounds swelled with overwhelming abuse
not tall enough, not small enough, a little too dumb
and she trusted her worth like you'd trust a habitual liar
doubting every kind word that she told herself
some of these misconceptions came from the outside
but the worst ones that stuck around were in her own mind
And to look at her you might never see this
for years and years everybody overlooked it
it was the pain beneath the sheltered frame
the little pieces no one even knew
and it was the way she woke up to each day
hoping on a prayer for...

I think you're pretty selfish
and pretty self-obsessed,
you're not grateful for your family
take for granted all you've got
You
you can be arrogant, self-righteous, an outright asshole
self-piteous, dishonest
you revel in your victim status
because it's all about you,
all about what you decide to do
You are actually a cunt
an intellectually egotistical attention whore
hooked up on posturing
posing your thoughts and theories, observations and insights
on anyone who will listen
the distance from your head to your heart...

I've always wondered...
Is home where you were born or
Is home where you've lived longest or
Is home where your parents are or
Is home where you live right now or
Is home where you were the happiest or
Is home where you desire to live or
Is home where you learned the most or
Is home where the heart is or
Is home where the hurt is or
Is home where you hate the most or
Is home where you feel content or
Is home where you finally die...?
The answer is: home is YOU.
And if you decide to "run away from home",
Then you're really...

(written for the "Mirror Mirror" competition)

My Grandmother’s hands are mine, now,
And my eyes are those of all the Finns before her,
Alive with knowing,
Yet maddeningly, stoically, calm.
I look through my skin
And my seventeen-year-old soul is still there,
But her hair is whitening,
Lighting the rainbow of all hair-hues at once,
Such that it’s impossible to tell what color predominates;
My mother’s hair did the same, at my age.
There are no wrinkles, yet,
But there has been slight shiftings—
Gentle nudges from the...
