the year of lyrics: a poetry project

my search for inner-peace, one poem at a time

Day 128 – Conflicting Forces

Leave a comment

All right, I confess
I can give you all the best
Trust in me: I will never give you less

I am all that you
Could ever bargain for
But just face it, I wasn’t the one begging for more

I have all these flaws,
My scars and my bruises
Still I withstand the constant stings, abuses

‘Cause I’m stronger than I seem,
I’m taller than my height
I fear only fear itself, even if I scream at night

I scare away your demons
Send them straight to hell
And your mind and soul? Yes, I know them quite well

Only I can shelter
You from this affliction
I am nothing more than your mind’s contradiction
