Not Me


I see the world through a veil 

A dark cloud with more dark clouds

No opening, no silver lining

I feel the presence of my former self

Emboldened by darkness, hidden by light

I see you follow me, a wrong decision indeed

I see the depth and not the beauty 

I feel the air but not purity 

This could go on and on

How long are you willing to be strong 

For I am leading you to destruction 

My destruction leading to yours

So let me go and let me be 

Take a turn, down the road 

And never look back at me 

For my path is lit with lights 

Leading and guiding me to unknown heights

  1. Hey Shifa, thanks for your follow on my blog! I’ve been looking at your poems, and they’re very deep. I would love to talk to you about your life and your poetry sometime, I’m really fascinated with what’s happened to you in your life to create poems such as these. Feel free to message me anytime.
