Identity

I wondered who I am

If I’m defined as to who I’ll be

Or who I really am

Do they see?

See the real me?

Or do they judge me by the peers that I am with

I feel misunderstood often

I even misunderstand myself

I need to find myself

And they need to stop labelling me

Dictated Beauty 

I want to cry, I want to hide

I want to be where I’m alone

Where no one can hurt me

The media, the TV, they tell and show you things of what beauty should be

And I am a fool enough to believe them

I am blinded

I do not see myself.
I try to fit in but I just can’t

Or maybe I never wanted to

But it hurts when you try to stand up for yourself

While their boots of shaming are keeping you to the ground.
So I wish for days of alone time

With no one to tell me I’m not worth it

I try and heal the scars before they start creating new one’s again.

I Stayed

One summer day on a summer night I found myself

And there I stayed

I

I exist nowhere

I am anywhere and everywhere

I am unnoticeable 

I am….

I’m too fat again

I’m too skinny tomorrow

I will never be enough

I will never be just fine

I’m either too much or too little 

Not enough or an excess

I’m starting to fall again

Fall out of love of myself

Hide Me

For I am ashamed

Cover me with blankets of warmth 

Convince me that I am fine being me

Or find me in the corner

Hiding in the dark 

I’m Better Off Alone

You see I’d like to find someone to share this life we all live

But I don’t want just anyone, this love is not easy to give.

If it’s the wrong fit, then I’d rather spend my life alone

Than choose to be with the wrong one, I’d rather be left unknown.

I do not rush to things such as the matter of the heart

Because when it hurts I easily fall apart.

So if I don’t entertain your advances,

I don’t go with your pick lines or your subtle glances,

It’s because I see you as the wrong fit

And I’m better off alone than settle and just sit.

Here I am under the stars just like a dream

And it’s just me

And I can’t be more than happy

I Don’t Understand

I thought that was it
I thought you’d be it
Turns out just like before, you are just a phase

I’ve let you go and I am not holding back
You’re not the one for me
I guess you never were

And although that is something I don’t understand
I accept the truth and the fact
So I can be at peace with myself

Solitary

To watch the stars alone
To witness each sunrise by yourself
To dance under the rain
To feel the dew drop kiss your cheeks
To hear the sound of the breeze
To feel the sand beneath your feet
All this you do alone, without anyone, just yourself
But then you find that this is all worthwhile

Words from a Little Person

Poets bleed from the heart and soul
