Devotion

A Poem by Andre Waters II
"

How is this for true Devotion...

"
I'll just wander, poised and aware
Lost in my head on an empty street
Looking around for an answer
But I'm unsure if it's discreet
Loneliness taken over my body
Gives me the feeling that being lonely is my hobby, but why?
I have all these people waiting in the lobby.
Am I here to entertain? No I am not
Do wanna be entertained? Not by a long shot
But I await something that peaks my interests
Looking through the glass of an empty past
My religion told me I shouldn't focus on it
Though I try, the repeated history starts to make it rounds
I suggest you run cause sugar, I'm going down
I'm losing all I fought for on my own...maybe someone should take my throne. At the very least, I be overthrown but never forgotten about for the villa I've grown.
Do you see me for the person I strive to be?
Do you overlook me for the person you don't like in me?
Am a person to you at all, do you see right through to the inside of me?
This person, I don't know, but it's not who I thought I'd be.
I look on and I asked myself, "Am I really devoted?" Or Should it be my devotion to leads me to the person I know wrote this.

I've used warning signs, focal points and makeshift gauges. I've moved further than I ever thought I could, but I'm still missing a lot more than I thought I would. That doesn't stop me from moving cl.. more..
