I'm Just a Man

I'm Just a Man

A Poem by Josh Anderson

Sometimes we feel insignificant in the grander scheme of things

I'm just a man, and living a nightmare 
I would scream 
But I don't think the world cares 
I wish I could dream 
I wish I had the capacity 
But all I see are the visions haunting me 

I'm just an angel, with no wings to fly with 
I would call for help 
But they'd call me selfish 
I'll help myself 
I've been doing it for years 
Don't shed me any tears 

I'm just lost, with no sense of direction 
I would stop 
But I have a conviction 
I've hung on a cross 
I've gained and I've lost 
How many bridges burned, for how many crossed 

I'm just a saint, with no halo to guide me 
It's not that I'm damned 
I've just got demons beside me 
I'm just a man 
Living with faith falling through his hands 
Like grains of sand
