I Am

In my darkest days
I play the villian
With a touch of tragedy
And an air of ego
I submit to the unrelenting pull
Of the whisper in my head
That voice that is so soft
So sweet
So poisonous
Caressing my thoughts
Usurping my will
I become a destroyer
Of carefully crafted lives
My own included
I wrap myself in shadow
To hide from the light
I bend reality
With the chemicals I use
Anything is nothing
When everything is what I’ve lost
And yet…
In my brightest hours
I play the hero
A sympathetic ear
To all the sorrow
That plagues a soul
I selflessly sacrifice
For what is right
Hanging on
To ideals that seem outdated
To standards
That feel unreachable
I am
Sadness
Heartache
Pain
Sorrow
I am
Hope
Darkness and light
The duality of humanity
This expression of me

I Am

Artist's Description

I have no freakin idea where this came from… I sat down to write with no clear picture and this is what came out. It actually sounds a tad bit arrogant to me.
