Left Behind

by sschubert

Copyright ©2010 Stephanie R Schubert


I shine
Not at all
Next to many


I stand tall
Next to none
There is no such thing as the one


For whom should I claim to be
When I am not part
Of a we


I am holding on to a lie
Cross my heart
Pray to die

Only for one reason
Do I breathe
Every moment make believe

Tread lightly if you dare
Next time I won’t play fair

wow - that was a fav! loved the economy of expression and the intelligence of the poem itself. felt the final two lines a wee bit disconnected from the rest in terms of the overall tone of the poem but you still knockd it out of the stadium for me.

best wishes

Don't let life harden your sweet heart, Steph.. Oh please. Perhaps I read you wrong, yet I feel your pain emanating here among the lines. Patience is a virtue, self-esteem builds value, sunshine shares smiles... what more can I say to my friend? Maybe cheers... and hugs, Mary Ann
