Empty Soul

Empty Soul

A Poem by AaronFreitas

Originally a song I wrote way back Feb 10, 2008, changed a couple things so I could share. It was written about a specific moment in my life where things weren't good.



Nothing's ever perfect
Nothing's ever fair
I look into these eyes
And see this blank stare

Frayed since my creation
Abandoned from the start
My mother never loved my dad
And it breaks my f*****g heart!

Made to disappoint
Destined to fail
Created for your laughter
Only I could never tell

I am so pathetic
It’s so sad to see
I am just a worthless liar
but that’s what you made of me

That’s why you did it
That’s why you left me empty
Torn between my family
And it’s not sad for you to see

Why me? Why me?
What did I do to deserve this empty destiny?
Why me? Why me?
Take my empty soul and leave me free to be

You gave me life
But left me in this empty hole
So take my life
And my empty soul

I like how open your words are
I guess living between two that are not in love is painful
I can say i relate to this
Only its somehow enlightening to see things through someone else's perspective

This sure makes me feel like a misunderstood teenager again. And somehow that makes me sad to think that people don't really take other's pain seriously, because of their age or color of skin or gender.

Nothing's ever perfect no, life isn't fair either. However, life sure is big. It's big and long and full of opportunities for you to create whatever you feel like and fill it with whatever you choose.

I liked the poem, thanks for sharing

This is indeed heart-wrenching. One thing though is that I notice you use rhyme in the beginning few verses but then switch to freestyle. It's a little off, like either stick to freestyle or complete rhyme, but I think if I could hear it, it would probably sound different.

Very deep and quite moving and heart breaking for sure.
Love the title goes very well.
I am very sorry if this is about you, seems like you have had quite the few family problems, having a broken family is very hard, and I'm sure plenty of us can relate to that.
This piece is REAL its also emotional and honest.
I really liked this poem allot.
Keep writing :)

Nothing can always be good, can it? Even when I feel my life is so together, there's always that one aspect that makes it all fall apart again, then I'm back to where I started. Point is, we all gotta start somewhere. I love my life, but always have those feelings of uncertainty where I have no idea what's going on. Not all can be right all the time, but it's our choice to make them right. We make the decisions in our lives & how to run it. There no point in being perfect for anyone, but just living a life in which we feel most comfortable. We are not worthless, we are not scum. We are just...who we are. To me, its all all about accepting who you are. If you ,ale mistakes, figure out a way to change them into better things. Do things that make you smile & which make you most worthy to yourself. Love yourself, even if you feel low. Not everyday will be bright, but you must find a way to face the sunshine...no one is worthless...no matter how we feel...someone will always care about you & keep you in their hearts. Forever & always.

I love to write, most my work tends to be on the darker side. I write from my heart and tend not to mess with it too much. I guess sometimes I write and post without focusing on what everyone else w.. more..
