What We Are

What We Are

A Poem by idiotproof--1
"

interesting little poem I did while I was supposed to be doing school work :o)

"

How does it feel

to drown in the screams you never let out

and be buried alive

by the tears you refused to cry?

For everything you kept inside to protest all that you've become.

We carry the weight of lives you never lived.

We bare the sorrow you would never give.

We are the smiles you forgot

and the pain you left behind.

The lessons you were taught

and the love you couldn't find.

The darkness in this world and the light within your dreams.

We are here to remind you how you tore the world at it's seams.

How does it feel

to know you brought this on yourself

Or maybe you couldn't help it at all.

Perhaps you were wrapped up in the web of life

and never saw the spider coming.

We are regret and hate

agony and vain

love and happiness

All the things you can push away.

We are what you make us.

We are whispers in your mind.

 More than anything

we are here.

Are you ready to meet us?

Are you ready to know exactly what you could have had?

Exactly what you left behind?

This is a really powerful piece. I thought it was a very clever idea, you wrote it beautifully.
We are the smiles you forgot
And the pain you left behind
The lessons you were taught
And the love you couldn't find

This is my favorite part, it was so interesting to think that the person was being addressed by all of those things.

I think with "agony and vein" you meant "vain" and not "vein" like the blood vessel but I'm not exactly sure of what you meant, you'll know :)
