No Kind of Life

No Kind of Life

A Poem by Blake Blackstone

I wrote this because I always had big dreams for myself. Then reality smacked me in the face and told me that I would never be anything more than a grain of sand in time.

I wasn't meant to be here. I had so many dreams a head of me
I'm watching time tick away, stopping for no one.
It's the only thing that is forever, but yet each second is a new one and now dead and gone.
I thought I would have been somewhere by now.
No progress here, I think to myself. This is not the life that I wanted.
I wanted to be all these amazing things and accomplish all these amazing feats.
I thought I would be special, a celebrity, a rock star. Maybe even a god.
Instead I'm not appreciated. I am lost in the ever violent wave of mediocrity.
It swallows me and I lose myself, I lose what I was, what I wanted...

Extraordinary. It's strange that how your words can define others' lives. In this case, i can totally resemble to each words. Thanks for sharing :)
