Feelings Poem

I've Cut Off All Emotions

-The only thing constant in life is change and growth whether positive or negative.-

Good Enough For Me

© Jurnee2nevaeh
Born a self hatin' little girl with a soul so pure
Beautiful and smart-- so young, yet mature
Talented with words, but the world doesn't see
That this is the only way that I know how to be me
Broken and beaten by this world that I despise
I've learned to block it all out, I no longer open my eyes
They've been permanently shut, so now I live through what I feel
But I've cut off all emotions so life's no big deal
I'll be great one day, that's what I tell myself
I'll be great one day without any of their help
I'll be great one day and then they'll see
I'll be great one day-- And good enough for me

    Feels like I could have been reading one of my old journals. I know how you feel; keep writing. If you truly want to cut ties you are going to need an immense amount of patience. The more time you spend distant from people whether physically or just emotionally the more difficult it is to consider a change of thought...
    You are going to have a lot of time to be introspective. Decide who you want to be and make it happen. Procrastination is just a state of denial, trying to convince yourself you actually wanted to do whatever it may have been.

    This poem shows excellent rhymes and wonderful description. In a way, I can relate to you being depressed because at some times it's hard to share your feelings about a problem you have or what your dealing with. This is a great poem!
