Me Versus the World (free-verse)

What are these verses for?

Me versus the world.


Stone cold, but I remain warm,

Keeping my peace hidden from the swarm of leeches, I’ve been warned to refrain from,

Disdain painted across their faces as they see me making it without them,

Without a handout I stand out,

For as much as they put me down,

Minimizing my potential, living in denial,

I didn’t need you to overcome these trials,

That keep on trying me, endless spirals,

If anything, some of you inspired me to fly higher, than an admirer wired up with passionate fire, who was betrayed by pathological liars,

And that allowed me to never turn back,
To see those who turned their backs on me when I was in dire need,

Perhaps I shoulda got therapy or seek God’s healing, but it’s hard to make sense of it all,

I’ve been lost,

Forgive me if I ever been a burden.

Normally, my attachment is avoidant, but the moment I become open,

I realized these persons, were never my friends,

Just impersonating, perpetrating a fraud, false confidant,

But I thank all those who let me know what it really was early on.

No matter what they say,

I’ve never been fake nor two-faced,

If anything I’m too transparent, and that’s just too intense for the counterfeit.

I’m genuine, I don’t fit in,

But that’s a blessing, and also menacing for those who fear their own reflection,

Life’s full of lessons for greatness,

You either break or make it, I only take wins.

Writer. Poet. Artist. Lyricist. Born in December 16, 1995. I'm Mexican-American of Native American and Spanish descent. Southwestern US born -> Grew up in the Chicagoland area including Northwest Indiana (mostly East Chicago) -> moved to a warmer place. I've been writing since like around the late 2000s. Depression and anxiety was swallowing me and I had difficulty trusting others, so I decided to confide in writing. It started off as Spanish songwriting, then it evolved into English poetry, prose, and short stories the more I improved my English grammar and vocabulary. I once had to take ESL classes, until it was determined that I didn't need to anymore around middle school. I became so dedicated to writing that I just did it everyday, and it served as my daily therapy as I was battling with negative thoughts. It put my mind in a state of meditation where it opened me up to many ideas and inspiration that I lived to create. I began to notice that I could write and speak things into existence with my words and actions. I had to find myself, and search for the power of the mind.
