ShellA Poem by Jordan Avechuco
"Live your life to the fullest,
Never look back & never regret."
The hardest part about living is living it the right way.
But I guess thats because no one really knows what the right way is,
True we have our laws, religions, and "standards" to "guide" us,
But in all honesty none of this feels right.
There are holes everything,
some bigger than others.
These holes keep me up at night.
I can't see through them to the daylight,
And by daylight I mean of course the bliss of ignorance.
To not know and to live peacefully without a care,
That is what I dream of.
I look at these people,
The glow of happiness in their eyes,
And the smiles on their faces,
They may not ever know what its like to see others the way I do.
I feel happy,
I have a great life, and a loving girlfriend,
But when I look in the mirror all I see is a shell,
A fake smile.
To feel that way about yourself and not have a way to explain it hurts...
Not many can understand how it feels,
To know that everyone thinks your just trying to get attention.
But in all reality this feeling is true and I can't figure out why.
I need to fill these holes in my life,
Otherwise I may never be truly happy.
