Description

“What have you done in your life that makes it seem impossible to recover from? A crucial mistake? A misunderstanding? A tendency to cling to immaturity? A row of decisions that scream irresponsibility? Or have you committed the greatest sin: Not really doing anything? No goals. No dreams. Believing life & success come easy. You took time for granted & now it feels like your time is up. Wasted. I know the feeling. You wake up every morning wondering: Why am I still here? There’s no purpose, no use, no hope of accomplishing anything. I thought the same. Until one day I realized, I am not here by chance. There is a reason for being.” -ecj

Excerpts:

Boys Don’t Cry”

Boys don’t cry
though we have
tear ducts
in our eyes

boys don’t cry
the sign of
weakness
is far from us

boys don’t cry
middle school
high school
dry your eyes

college campus
car accident
addiction too
hard to quit

wife is gone
the job too
not knowing
what to do

rage
scream
abuse
don’t dream

other men
don’t cry
how could I

I want to
but can’t
no one ever
told me
why

Love?”

To know all my secrets
All my failures
The worst parts of me
And love me anyway

When I don’t have the right answers
When I fall flat on my face
When I stumble in the darkness
And love me anyway

When I get old and grey
Lose most of my teeth
Need a cane to walk across the street
And love me anyway

Does this love exist?
Would anyone dare to try?
Or the real question is
When I find her
Would I?

Enough”

I wasn’t tall enough
Or strong enough
I wasn’t brave enough
Or cute enough
I wasn’t rich enough
Or famous enough
I wasn’t enough
For you to love me
And now
I don’t love me either
