I am Not Everything

written by: JahArt Kushite

 

i am not everything
you think i am
i stay awake lingering
early hours of a.m.

i am a crumbled soul
blowing in gusts of life
vexed and perplexed
under shadows of strife

i am not close to
perfection either
i drift from reality
in distances farther

i am a soul you
lay bare
and act as if you
care

i am weary
my eyes teary

i am a forsaken
child
lost in the wild

i am a grain of sand
flowing in 
hourglass of time
your give away piece
of a dime
