Poem: It’s Not That Easy

selfportraitcrpdI know who I am

Deep inside.

Yet always on the surface

Is the other self.

I feel that deep self inside

Peeping out through the clouds

Of the outdoor self

Of my existence.

I know it’s there

Yet I choose to ignore it.

I walk through my life

Not in my life.

Cause if I walked

In my life

I’m forced to deal

With all the pain, rubbish, tarnish

That makes me a flawed human.

I want to walk in my life

Not through it.

But, it’s not that easy.
