Days and Nights ever dull and deprived of life
Cold, heartless and unconcerned in their actions
Winds gliding as if the atmosphere could whisper
A feeling of negativity and depression surrounding the area
That is I.
Others explode outwards with concerns and needs
I ignore all forms of life besides my person, for the sake of survival
Continuing onward, I no longer look backward at the path traveled
As black and devoid of life as Space itself, I suck up positive life
I am stagnant, I am unwavering
I am Ventum.
Ecosystems and varied land masses, lively with colorful splashes
Warm, sweetly crafted with kindness and care in their making
Sun brighter than the whitest flame, shining down upon life
A general feeling of acceptance and love surrounds the area
That is I.
Friends and acquaintances surround me with help and happiness
I wish to accept all forms, but alas I mustn’t be given help freely
Continuing onward, I look backward at my path less traveled
As bright and lively as Earth itself, I am damaged but love life
I am damaged, hurt, but carry onward.
I am Kolk.
Two halves of the same coin, we form a pact with one another
Our actions mystified by the currents of time, nothing certain
One benefits and heals, while the other damages and removes
Raped and taken like innocence, or given and accepted like gifts
There is lack thereof any middle ground
Mind like a battlefield, life made miserable or welcomed
Somewhere between two polarities, will I find comfort.
Between extreme euphoria or depression, will I find a balance
Accepting that which is given, achieving that which is obtained
My path no longer crooked nor pearly, only realistically viewed
I am to be, I will be, I am that which I am.
I am James.
So, this is a poem of me venting out my current feelings on current situations. I shared my other poem, and it got decently recognized, so I felt I would share this too.
Also, for those unaware, my real name is James. That is the significance of the last line in the last Stanza.
