    Mira doing poetry

    I used to love to write. I started with wanting to write hip hop lyrics. But never happened. It ended up being love poems. That was all I could write. In therapy they wanted my to try writing again. And I did not want to write love poems. Thinking about that makes me get worse already. But I wanted to share one I wrote not that long ago. The title was an album name from one of my favorite groups growing up.

    Fear emptiness despair

    Born into this new world, so many chances to grow
    So very young with a smile and happiness so near
    Maturing into a man my mind had a different idea though
    Learning experiences ever darker filled with doubt and fear

    Tainted I went from boy to early adulthood
    Avoiding people around me but longing for that one caress
    With the voice within whispering you don’t matter I felt misunderstood
    The void gripped me ever tighter and left nothing but emptiness

    Dreams and hopes fleeting away as I approach middle age
    Where every thought and emotion triggers a dim dark nightmare
    Unwittingly depriving myself of joy I end up living with rage
    Until there is nothing left but fear, emptiness and despair

    Unsure of where the road ahead will lead me
    Its time to take the reins and replace the dark with love and empathy

    I love that sense of hope in the ending. Who doesn’t love a guy who writes poetry?

    That was beautiful and heartbreaking all at once. You really can write - especially as that wasn’t in your native tongue.
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
