So I was feeling bored tonight, just browsing through facebook and I had this idea, so I put out a request for my friends to suggest a topic for me to write a poem on:
Here is the status: I
Why do you want to bring me down?
Inspired by Anelia Casimir
Is it jealousy?
Why the envy?
I just don’t understand
You don’t even know my story
But you would want me to be history
I’m not rich
I’m not even that beautiful
Only smart enough to fool you
For you seem to feel the need to covet me
Resentment for what?
In spite of all that
I shall rise about it all
And even offer a hand
To get you off the ground
For it must pain you to feel you’re beneath me
When I only see you as an equal
I wonder where this all comes from
Is it me that you hate?
Or what you think I have become
I wonder if it isn’t just greed
That makes you see me this way
Or maybe even foolish desire
Because you feel the need to just like me…
