I Guess

A Poem by Evelynn
"

Found my old notebook where I kept a lot of my poems. I hope you enjoy it!

"

I guess I should apologize for dreaming my own dreams

I guess I should apologize for trying to be me

I guess I should apologize for being who I am

I guess I should apologize that I’ll never be him

And every obstacle I move around

I always fall back down

When it’s my turn to move the pieces

I’m pushed down on my knees

I guess that I can’t move

‘Till I’m good enough for you

When I have the chance to leave

Then I finally can breathe

I guess that I should be sorry for never being great

I guess that I should be sorry for never having strength

I guess that I should be sorry for wishing on a star

I guess that my wish will always be too far

And every time I open my eyes

To stand my up and fly

I’m reminded that my dreams

Can’t become a reality

I guess when my chance arrives

To be a bird and fly

You’ll hold me down

‘Till my chance disappears

When you finally realize

That my dream is my everything

It’ll already be too late

Because you told me since I was little, that it’s just not my fate

very lyrical, gave me the impression it was a song of heartache and jaded desires. well done.

I really like the rhythm and concept of this, it's heartbreaking but relatable and well written.

thanks so much
Don't apologise for being yourself - no matter what anyone tells you - everyone else is already taken.

WHAT AM I?: Nephilim WHAT AM I?: Nephilim
A teen boy gets killed, but trades his soul for another chance. He changes. A girl notices the new boy with silver eyes.
This one came across as about a parent... and how being treated

Funny you said that, it actually is about that
Action trumps blame every time.
