“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.” -Marilyn Monroe

i thought i was free

i thought i had the key

thought i’d found the road

I could see my goal

I thought I had love

Thought I’d battled through the rough

But it sometimes life is hard

Yea sometimes life tough and confusing. I never saw this coming

How could I just so bluntly, give my heart away?

Yea it’s crazy this maze is still unwinding

And I just keep rampaging into steel walls

Now my heart speeds up and I thought I had enough

But I guess that’s why I’m where I am today

Cause I keep on never ever even denting

I just keep rampaging into steel walls. Stupidly. Like a silly girl.

                                                                Now I’m growing up

                                                                Guess my heart’s had enough

                                                                Cause Ion even care

                                                                ‘Bout the rumors that I hear.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

I can connect to something rather similar, that happened to me. I love it. You're honest in your poem, and your poem is full of emotion and you. Your poem is powerful too. You have a greatnesss in you and a talent, and I hope you know that. Thank you for sharing this!
