Treasure Island

My Struggle


My struggle is life.
I've tried to keep it together and helpful,
show and give what love I have while struggling with deep madness.
My struggle has been to be understood even though I know it's hard.
My struggle is that I'm just so contemptible and fierce.
Too intense I've been told and often uncensored too.

My struggle was always to prove I cared for a special someone.
My struggle is I'm just a worthless pig that deserves to die.
My struggle now is to find the how.
My struggle is a worthless test, put to me by a heartless God.

My struggle?
Who cares anymore?
No one.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
