So many of us
Poetry By Anthony James

I've misunderstood myself a thousand times,
and others, millions.
I make up a storyline
about myself.
And it's not good.

When I think of myself
my head falls down
and I see the ground...
Something lifts it back up,
but I don't know what it is.
Something turns the page
and I wake and it's another day.

if only she knew
that her smile as she walked by
put two pieces of my heart back together

just a billion more to go...

and the world will never know
just how much I needed it, to love me.
