Busy weekend...New Poem

Okay that past 2 days have been crazy for me. I've had some family things going on and its been distracting me a lot. Also this week is going to be very busy being that I'm going back to school in a week. I don't know how much time I will have to blog. I am not forgetting about you guys! So don't worry (not that I think you would) I wrote this poem last night and I have decided to post it. Tell me what you think (and be kind haha)

I'm trying hard to not be ignorant anymore
In today's society its a challenge,
It's an art form.
Getting swept away,
In the day to day
I hit a wall that stopped me in my tracks
It's a reality check
Things are not okay
Relation trauma leading me to distract myself
To swallow the pill of information
as my medicine to cope.
It's working
Making me feel more secure.
As I learn
About the world around me.
I know that I've been drifting into apathy.
Now with events I fill to the brim with empathy
Because I got to make a stand
I've been sitting here way too long
I want to help as much as I can
Try and fix some of the wrong.

Hope you enjoyed! I always get really nervous sharing my poetry. It's almost like sharing a diary entry to the world even if I'm just sharing it to a friend or something. I guess it's the risk I'm willing to take as a writer.

  1. "I know that I've been drifting into apathy.
    Now with events I fill to the brim with empathy"
    I love these lines. It's a nice juxtaposition of opposite ideas, but there's a feeling of relation because of the similar sound. This poem has a good handle on the drifting feeling that keeps us from moving forward.

  2. I really liked your poem. It was really good.

  3. Thank you both! It's nice getting my poems out there and people besides my family liking it. It makes me feel like I'm a decent poet.
