Lost
by Author Reinvented

I am lost.
I was broken long ago.
Tried to fix myself but I don't know
How much is me
And how much is the seeds
Planted in my memories,
A darkness hidden deep.

So push me down
To the ground,

No gain without pain- a Runner’s tale
by Dr. Robert Ippaso

Legs pumping, muscles screaming
Eyes transfixed, seeing but not seeing,
Mind wandering sometimes dreaming
Heart thumping, loudly beating.
Body glistening, pace increasing,
No thought other than just breathing,
Inner voice gently pleading,
It's against me that you're competing.
Hardened gaze, resolve seeking
Any thought of slowing down but fleeting,

Panorama
by Georgia H

I'm trying to find a new perspective of me;
To learn to accept my mountains, valleys, and plains.
To learn to find beauty in my own landscape.
To develop a whole new panorama of the world.

Don't Forget
by Author Reinvented

Don't forget, don't forget who you are,
Keep fighting to find yourself.

Don't listen, Don't listen to those voices,
That keep telling you who you should be.

All over are other people's reflections.
In a maze of mirrors, think twice before you choose yourself.

Ode To My Hands
by Tim Seibles

Five-legged pocket spiders, knuckled
starfish, grabbers of forks, why
do I forget that you love me:
your willingness to button my shirts,
tie my shoes—even scratch my head!
which throbs like a traffic jam, each thought
leaning on its horn. I see you

waiting anyplace always
at the ends of my arms—for the doctor,

Mirror
by Ceyx Kingfisher

Y’all come crying,
When I’m dying.

Y’all are squealing,
While I’m dealing.

Not this, not that,
No way, you say,

Just,

Philosophy of Me
by Ujjal Mandal

By Ujjal Mandal, India

Thoughts have a continual succession
of complacency or anxiety,
black thoughts paint me a fire fly
that emits light mere in the darkness.

I am like the flowing air
neither I have head to think
nor the arm to catch,

all my jagged edges
by Andrada Predescu

I smoke too much
though I know its bad for me and I fall too hard and too often though I know its bad for me
I overreact and can break at a single word I’ve tried to build a thicker skin
A tough exoskeleton
One to withstand all the years of hurt
But I’m soft
I’m just this membrane I absorb it all
words-
things said in passing
And they lodge themselves in me,
