Author: Ashley


In the middle always
not alone but unseen
standing in the corner of a large crowd
to afraid to dream

Not a care in the world should make me
stop, I feel stupid and distinguished,
the unfortunate i've got.

too dry to be talented
too confused to be skilled
too unfaithful to accomplish
use to being tortured than killed

too unpatient to hesitate
too unready to be set
too many exceptions to be accepted
too worthless to be kept

farthest lessons are closest learned
use time wisely
before fate takes it's turn.

Really good...

Ashley, this is a really great poem. It was definately one of the more heart felt poems I've read today... Just keep slapping your emotions down on paper and I'll keep reading them.
