I Am... A Voice

Wed, 09/02/2015 - 00:20 -- Sammywd

I am a voice for those who can’t express
The pressure mounting, so much duress
When words cannot describe enough
A feeling so latent, it belittles us
Unjustly dreaming of perfection

But experience leads us in the right direction
Our mistakes will bind us
with the past
And insecurities grow till' at last
We feel 
defeated and falter the truth
That we are still within our youth
With years to come, the futures bright

So say these words
 I love myself for all my splendor and what comes my way I shan’t surrender

This poem is about: 
My family
My community
My country
Our world
