Empty Thoughts 2 (Poem)

I got so many goals in my soul

But this Depression keeps taking a toll

I’m tired of writing without another pair of eyes to read

Will I get more readers if I was dead

Seems like they don’t see your work until your gone

My heart wants to keep going

But my efforts and my viewers just don’t match up

My dreams were put on halt and I’m just trying to catch up

But I’m wondering is it too late

Am I too late

Tired of speaking to an empty room

Will I make it before my death bed

Or will this led only get read when I’m on the front page of the paper

That’ll be the day my fam stop being my biggest hater

So many will lie about not knowing I was suffering

Straight bluffing for some sympathy

I’m just feeling empty

Is this just empty words from my soul

Maybe

Or Maybe I’m just making room

Writing Prompt #23

Write a poem about your body

My body is a temple that I often don’t want to be in

The look and make of the model may be pleasant to some but not me

Reasons why I use to want to leave

But I rather do some repairs

And continue to climb the stairs

To Success

We are not all blessed

With a great body that cover our flesh

But it’s up to us

To change the image that we don’t like instead of putting up a fuss

That’s what I think of my body

Other Version:

My body is like a Chevy Tahoe

Big and wide

It still is a good ride

The inside is nice

Great leather seats inside

The engine is loud and impactful

Once you hear it you will be amazed

But why am I so fazed

I just never looked at the body as great

I guess because the dents

Always made me repent

Fixing it up would bring me joy that I always dreamt

But that thought is nothing but a dream that mechanics been told me would happen

But it just hasn’t happened

So I settle for this truck

Because for the time being I’m stuck

Reason why I barely take it out

Because this truck is something I’m not comfortable with
