My Soul Definition

Fri, 10/30/2015 - 00:17 -- EmmeM

Defining a person is a delicate thing

Having to dig and claw at an inner-being

And hope nothing falls out


To look at myself through a magnifying glass

Sifting through my life and trying not to stick at an impasse

While never leaving the truth


A word that I see close to my heart 

Is perseverance for the things that I had the courage to start

Nothing can sway my path


A little to the left is a word in bold

Passion for my dreams and things I dearly hold

I will never let them go


If I examine my brain there is a lot going on

Creativity flows and logic commands from dusk till dawn

They will never leave my side


There is also a cloud of darkness and fear

Of not meeting expectations and that death is near

A battle fought everyday


But if I look deeper inside my mind

I find someone just trying not to fall into the bind

Of what I’m expected to be


This is me in a few short lines

Or at least what the magnifying glass saw this time

It must be laid to rest
