Question My Existence

Words that were written at a time when I was struggling with self-acceptance. As hard as we sometimes try to change what’s looking back at us from the mirror, the less success we have. The older I get the less I’m affected by self-consciousness but there was a time when I was ill at ease with the whole image thing
.
.
Barbiturate recuperation,
Feeling perpetual greed.
Pronunciation of your redemption,
From lifes realities.
Smiling deathly face excites you
And its properties.
Fiery eyes stare, will ignite you,
Burn for eternity.

So dry the tears off my disfigured face.
My name is the only clue to my identity.
Why I am and why I came,
I question my existence.
I’m sorry my presence repulses you.

My soul and spirit died along time ago.
My flesh still lives against my will.
I’ve tried to be as humane as my mentors,
But it’s hard to learn from inside a padded cell.

Take a good look at me
And see what you can do.
For you could be my saviour.
Sharpen your blade and sever my dead skin.
Remould me for the sake of my sanity.

I awake to inspect my shredded carcass,
Before me I see not much has changed.

Asphyxiation by depression
Life long agony.
Realization stands to attention
Despised socially.

See my realm of worthlessness
My total domain.
Hybrid soul of emptiness,
Alive among the humane.

This is my plight with time
Gaining momentum.
This is the reason why,
I still question my existence.
