HALF EMPTY

I let peoples burdens become my burdens,
so I handed you my wings.
I let people's worries become my worries
so I made it my destiny just to ease the pain .
I let people's problems become my problems
and it takes a lifetime just to solve them but I took the time to do it
I let people's heartbreak become my heartbreak
so I took your heart and replaced it with mines just so you can experience LOVE
I Let's people's emotions become my emotions
that I get this feeling that sometimes I change into you because I can feel everything as if I was you
I let people's wounds become my wounds
so that's why I'm covered in scars and I'm not even sure if there mines
I let's people's opinions become my opinions
trying to impress then so maybe I could impress myself
I let your nightmare become my nightmares
that's why I don't have any dreams because I couldn't stand you not being able to sleep at night
I let your tears becomes my tears
maybe that's why I can't cry when it come to my own emotions..
I let your shadows become my shadows
making my light disappeared
I let your anger become my anger
That I would fight just to satisfy your frustration
I let peoples struggle become my struggle
so I worked hard hopping one day you would fulfill the job I guided you to do
I Let people's fears become my fears
lettering my own bravery slipped away
I was always there to save the day
That I handed off things I need for myself and gave it to you
Even if you were weak I handed my strength to you
But now I'm half empty that I gave so much
nothing was fulfilling me.
I do it from the kindest of my heart but now I'm trying to breath
because I put the life back into everyone that I forgot the life in me
That's Why I'm so empty inside because I have nothing else to give but I continue to give you something because I can take the fact that I could have helped you..
But silence speaks
who's helping me ?
Once you're happy and feel complete I'm sitting here without anything Because I provided for others before I could even provided for myself...
That's Why I'm stuck
 EMPTY all by myself...
This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world

YOU GIVE AND YOU GIVE AND YOU HELP AND YOU HELP

THEN
YOU BEGIN TO FORGET ABOUT YOURSELF LEAVING

YOU EMPTY INSIDE....

 

MVP-Most Valuable Poet

it's wonderful that you are a cheerful giver

it's also important that you receive

if you're giving, and not receiving, then take it elsewhere

be a cheerful giver to the Lord, and watch how you receive inner strength in your spirit by God

seek Him for all
