The Alive Side


they all ask me how

i can be this honest, so strong.

maybe it’s because everything

i say and i am feels like a lie.

as hard as I’m fighting to stay alive,

I’m pretty sure I’m on the losing side.

I don’t know what you’re so impressed by–

This isn’t a metaphor, it’s fighting suicide.

About thefreescribbler

My life is one of words. I am a scribbler, whose thoughts are best expressed through adjectives and phrases and punctuation marks. I would not go so far as to call myself a writer, although many would disagree. I’m characterized more by my unfinished works and half-embodied ideas, scraps of stories and parts of poems. Maybe one day I’ll be a writer, but I’m okay with being a scribbler right now. It fits my personality and style, and best expresses my aims. I’m not trying to create some lofty version of literature. I’m just a kid blogging about life. View all posts by thefreescribbler
