Defeated

Like an uneducated clown
I live the day misbehaving
Always waking up in a new part of town
And greeting my world in a rushing daze
I clumsily gamble my life away
And barely survive this dark comedy
I’ve dealt some mistakes away
But the shame still haunts me
I scream louder and louder
But the world always drowns me
I throw my strength in punches
But the power always defeats me
I’m unworthy of forgiven confessions
My dignity drowns in humiliation
Desperately I search for new aspirations
Forgiveness grows in the smallest of wombs
Still the world thought me appalling
Since I’m a woman, a weakling
Who once screamed louder and louder
But the world just drowned me
I threw my strength in punches
Until the power defeated me

Written in 1999.

  1. There is a wealth of expressive emotion in your poetry. And a lot of artistry in your photography. Hope to see more real soon. Nurses heal the body; poetry heals the heart. 🙂
