renegadeexpression,internal turmoil,

You will never be that which you can’t

You will never say that which you won’t

You are forever trapped in your skin

Fighting a battle you will never win

No one knows just how it feels

When emotions are never real

Living life from day to day

Hoping maybe, there is a better way

There are a lot of people, but no one is around

When that smile becomes a frown

People see you but they will never know

The hopeless seeds that were sown

There is no love, so they will never grow

So you wait because only god knows

That you will probably die before you live

Because love and compassion you can never give


You fight an enemy you know so well

It makes up every single cell

Of who you are, or what you will be

You will never be like ‘they’ are

Even if you win the battle, you will lose the war.

The Battle Within

    A friend recently told me they thought this poem was about HIV. *scratches head*


  2. Awesome poem. About the endless struggles of life I’m thinking. I like the last line a lot too, says “no one gets out of life alive” to me.

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. You are spot on in regards to the meaning of the poem. That’s the beauty of art; it’s open to interpretation. As for the last line, I was basically saying that the struggles of life never end. Unless you die. Thanks again.
