Your only curse

Your only curse

A Poem by Devyani

You think I got it easy
Here's a piece of my reality
With neighbours snoopin' all around
My life is six feet underground

No matter what I say
No matter if it's night or day
It's like followin' is their call
Just waiting for me to fall

But I ain't got nothing to hide
So don't be taken by surprise
Coz my homies can vouch for this
I'm as clean as they come and live

No ghosts in my closet
No more skeletons in my backyard
Yeah you heard it right I said no more 
And I meant that part

I've made mistakes I've done and did
Not everything you could think of
But the rumors they don't phase me
I've heard a million of 'em now

If under my skin is where you seek shelter
You must be sorry how
Haters keep on hatin' but hey,
Who's keeping a score card now

By definition in transition
Not the one who was here yesterday
Today is my world of chances
Not gonna throw that away

You fear what you can't understand
And me? You never figured out
I'm still a mystery for you
You're in too deep to start anew

So listen up carefully 
I ain't got time for another verse
Always one step ahead of you
Lets admit it, I'm your only curse.

This gives me a new prospective that no matter wahat is in your past, it can dissapeare and not matter. It is a wonderful uptakeing task to help those who feel trapped about their past. Nicely done. :)

I like the poem. The flow and description in the poem was amazing. Sometime we need to set the rules and make them understood.
"Today is my world of chances
Not gonna throw that away"
A excellent ending to a outstanding poem.. Thank you.

i really, REALLY hope you win this. It's so honest and real. And it sounds like a rap! This was truly a great write.

Wow! Sounds like a rap actually! If you could rap I suggest you make this into lyrics! Good job!

after a long time, after a long long time, coming across a piece like this that touches the barren place within. Aah the bittersweet wait is finally over :)
