This Is Why

This Is Why

A Poem by Blysful

Don't let someone else define you: defy their expectations and meet your own!


You asked me why.
I said, "you know why."

Because nothing I care about
is important
Because nothing I ever do
is good enough
Because nothing I can say
will ever please you
Because everything I am
is a disappointment

You ask me why?
But you know why.

Because I've long stopped trying
to be what you want
Because I no longer care
about what you think
Because you pushed me so far
that I pushed right back
Because I'm tired of being
something I'm not

Don't ask me why.
You're the reason why.

Why I don't give a f**k
'bout what happens to you
Why I don't give a damn
whether you'll be alright
Why you no longer impact
anything I do
Why? You ask of me.
Because. That's why

That’s certainly what I was going for. I’m glad you felt it!
Wow. Awesome. I can feel the tension building and finally exploding in the last stanza. Nice job.

You failed miserably, if you thought this was an unsuccessful attempt. This is by far one of the best poems you have written and yeah I know it because i have read a lot of your works. The core feelings, caused chills to run down my spines. Yeah it's that good and the meaning clearly expressed. My appreciation:
The feelings clearly portrayed.
This heart clearly swayed.
My feelings relayed,
all here displayed.

I'll write so long as there's a pen in hand or a keyboard in reach. I ran out of pages in my numerous notebooks, so I made the (hopefully not disastrous) decision to post my work online :) more..
