Anguish Of A Struggling Poet

Poem By Jeremy Willson

I'm overwhelmed with disappointment
If only I were a better person
Stronger intellectually
To identify what is wrong with me
I used to think I was enough
People have continued to bring me down
Lower than my lowest point
I forgive but I don't forget
The pain hurts too bad
And telling me to get over it
Makes it worse
It's not as easy as it sounds
I ask God everyday for patience
Guidance to lead me on a better path
To be a man who deserves respect
Who knows that what he does is right
Because it's what my heart is saying
All I hear is its echoes through my veins
Little earthquakes pulsating through my wrists
Telling me that I know what I have to do
I must be better, work harder, get stronger

Birds Of A Feather....

I miss you, the next time I see you can I hold your hand?
It makes it easier, b/c against the world is where we stand
But against the wall is where I want you to be
The friction, adrenaline, my breathe all you'll be able to see

I've Done Enough

I have plenty of questions
That slowly eat away at me
Like a plague in the water
And all you are is the rain

Over Thinking So I'm Gonna Sit Down

I'm not important am I? My life seems miniscule
Everytime I try and do something I'm met with ridicule
To be honest I don't seem to matter
My life's a shity joke that isn't even met with laughter

Sweather Love

Whenever I'd get nervous
So nervous I'd be freezing cold
I slipped inside my sweater
Where it's nice and warm

Moments Away

If I blink will you disappear?
If I leave would you even care my dear?
I suppose we're both ghosts
We don't belong here, like rebellious quotes

Am I An Abstract Painting In A Gallery Full Of Still Life's, Or Is That Just My Ego?

I am different, I'm not like the others, I'm unique
My writing style is an unknown technique
My soul is a colorful mess
My lips whisper tales of old, though my eyes are colorless
