To Give Up My Dream

To Give Up My Dream

A Poem by Naomi Bloom
"

A poem of hopelessness and honesty; giving up.

"

And after all the rejection

I thought I’d at least find a dweeb

Or I could be you 

And I’d be cute that way.


I can’t pick up the phone anymore;

Paste a fake smile on my face.

I keep getting hit by the door,

My name is Disgrace.


Every year it’s worse;

Wake up when the kids are back from school.

I’m under the laptop curse

And I threw away the stupid rules.


Throw me in your jail

Of procrastination and underachievement. (Punish me!  Punish me!)

Just don’t make me fail

Or tell you all my selling points.

I can’t do it anymore,

Anymore,

Anymore.


I used to have bright lights all around me;

It wasn’t a problem then.

But I’ve made too many mistakes

To learn anything from them.


My secret is I want a cowardly life.

My dream is to give up my dream.

I could be a good wife and live a half-life

With a day job sort of theme.


I want to be normal

And do anything creative on the side

Because let’s face it;

The movies lied.

NOrmal is over rated. Be something full of passion. Not like someone who is in love but rather passion for life. :)

Oh there are no happy endings! Sometimes the thing we fear the most is success. This is a very good poem of the inner conversation that happens only in our minds.

Great work, sadly there is rarely a happy ending in life...
Still can't be miserable all the time :)
The poem reads very well even if the overall message is sad it has an p-beat feel to it... If that makes sense? :)

Ha thanks. I'm thinking of making it into a song, so the upbeat-ness is good to know.

Thanks. I actually have a lot more trouble writing music than words.
No fairytale endings in the real world. No picture perfect life to write home to mom about. Friends are few and far in between. Movies pitch and sell to the cravings of my flesh that in most situations urge me to go this way or that. Time to start over. From the beginning. The place of my birth, of my childhood. Simple is all I ask. Nothing too drastic or complex. Just simple. Keep up the great work.
