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.

My voice oh so poetic as it sound
I can never get enough as the poet writes
Creative, depression, happiness, who care?
Let it be heard for the goods to win
Let it be heard for the worst to leave the world..

I promise I won't do drugs
To make me slow as slugs
I promise to do good
And meet up as we should
Promise there is hope
Even without dope
I promise there's a chance
And hopefully romance


Make a brand new start
Not fake and scam your heart
Don't need no lucky charms
If I could hold you in my arms


I'm sick of all the waiting
And all the endless hating

Written by Kabuki

Is it wrong
For me to believe
I donít belong?
And yet,
I feel like an Earth Warrior!
Is this world not my home,
Or am I just passing through?
If this is not my world
What am I supposed to do?
Was I sent here for a season ----
To aid in the will of the Divine
Or for a reason ----
To join with more of my kind. . .
Vibrating at similar frequencies
To awaken this once Green Planet?
Daydreaming, aside
The answers unveil to me
Like faucet drops
As I meditate
And listen.
Now if only I had a spiritual pipe...

Smoke, lingers on my watch.
Forgot to watch, now I fear the time is near.
I'm choking.
The rare thought provoking, action.
Distractions, invoke
travelling on this path.
A spokesman, for the undevoted.
Unfocused, without promotion.
Self inspired, I conspire to rise higher.
An underling with ambitions,
of having no one under me.
A fallen king, with visions of abundance.
Some sissies I run with insist,
I should be satisfied with money incoming.
But I want to have enough funds, to run with.
Except, for each girl...

Tiny girl
Trapped in view
Smashed and broken anew
Splintered and left to stew
Cooking's done - time to renew
Change of chemical state in you

Written by FallenAngela
Retreating again to this dark lonely place,
Desperate and broken she hides her face.
Trapped in a cage of guilt and shame,
Past mistakes and unending blame.
Lies...leading to shattered trust,
Protect by walls with an ice covered frost.
A fiery HELL of long buried pains,
Numbed with only a poison about into the veins.

Tears falling again,
Will this self-destruction ever cease to begin?
Silently screaming...
Engulfed by her demons of fate,
Ashamed and wondering if this time she's too late.

Dearest Death,
† Will you not open you arms for me?
Why is it that even you, will you not welcome me?
I have been at your doorstep.
I crawled to you when I needed you the most,
but each and every time, you only made it worse,
because you rejected me.
now I face you chin up and without fear.
I yearned for your embrace, bringing warmth and oblivion,
But now I couldn't care less about the commodity of warmth.
each day I see the rising sun is one less I have to see.
I lived for those who live for themselves.
Now I'll die with those who...

Memories of being the perfect housewife
Dressed appropriately, perfectly
House in perfect order
Preparing perfect meals every night
Greeting him lovingly when he got home
Not really allowed to be the whore in bed
The kids came along, so perfect mother I became
All this plus working a forty hour week
How long did it last?

Not long, it came and went in phases, when I felt guilty
Couldn't keep up the facade
It just wasn't me
Left after 14 yrs
She's been dead and buried ever since

Smile girl child,
THe night is still young,
Smile girl child,
Run, run, run,
Open up another drink,
What about your poor mum?
Heaven knows what she will think,
SHe lost control,
You've lost your way,
Drinking & drinking,
Day after day,
Open up another vodka,
Poor another glass,
You know that within yourself,
The pain is still gunna last,
But yet you still keep going,
With another drink in hand,
Heading out the backyard,
Then laying in the sand,
You look up at the sky,
See the stars above,
And just wish and...

Being in business for yourself means just that...the business will not grow if not attended to. I think of my business like a garden--i must pay careful attention to it. Who cares about the fame cause the famous are in charge of the entertainment you see. I'm just getting then beep beep oh i see the exit yes!!!
I learned how to drive while on the country back roads, being on the autobahn and the M's. While driving i just apply it to life on the real. Everything i do is just rotation to the end. Mastering myself is the best investment i have ever thought about and will never regret...

For all my new Poet loves,
I welcome you to my Poetry Club,
By showing you love,
By saying Thank You,
By telling you how much I adore you,
I wrote a poem,
to show how many I love your support,
At the same time giving back to you,
My Love,
My support,
I thank you again for showing me love,
And write whatever,
You want to get off you chest,
Stay Blessed,
Do not stress,
And one love,
To the Rest,
For the best is still yet to be...

Written by MC Scenario
I've been dead for days now.
Trapped inside this body,
similar to a prison compound.
My creativity drains from me faster
than the blood did.
Oozing through my pores
and dripping
soon evaporating into nothingness.
I can eat, sleep, and think clearly.
I don't drink all day anymore,
the thought of drinking alone makes me uneasy.
The process is laid to rest
with the remainder of my artistic ambition.
Buried deep in my soul
somewhere cold
and distant.
I'm happy, content, and perhaps even peachy.
I'm not...
