Write Off (Free Verse)


Sitting alone listening to the silence ;
You see me, mirror says, I messed my life up  
and found me in the process, rebirth, new me  
and the critics, stand back with amazement,  
write off, like I was, never made  
to amount to much, much I  
do, much I did, brought  
tears in rain wash,  
many men, cursed  
to, see 
the 
back  
of me,  
talk of me,  
like I was the  
end game, see me done,  
see me done now, write off,  
good riddance, they took my file, and 
burnt it,  faders, ashes, to  be made of 
me. Being through hell and back, I paid the 
price , phoenix, me that, now I step, foot steps left 
in ashes, watch germination, shooting stars penetrate through, the ozone, 
layer, to make an entry, with burns on 
the back of the doubters, doubt this, new 
era and I say no sorry,  nada, 
regrets nada, this is life lessons 
and it made me stronger 
made me stranger, green 
lantern and to 
the observers 
thinking 
blown 
off
thinking
blown 
off

  2. I really like this - it had an interesting flow, kind of made me feel like how my when I'm writing - it kind of comes and goes in waves of quick thoughts and drawn out thoughts, all mingling together but disjointed. I liked it alot, especially the "shape" of the poem - it really guides the reader through a littler journey. Thank you for sharing :)
