embodied tyranny

So many things have happened,
in every way I'm scarred.
I'd hoped that once I got here
things wouldn't be so hard.

I've never been so lost,
even when I had a crutch;
It kills me to be so aware
of how deeply I've lost touch.

I don't recognize myself
and I don't like who I see,
I'm defined by all that I hold back
and that used to not be me.

I'm so fearful of falling down,
but secretly hope I will
because I can't bear to stagnate
but can't stop from standing still.

Adulthood hasn't brought peace,
just distance from my rage.
It's only made me passive,
to feel safe in this cage.

Where's that flame that used to burn?
that passion deep inside?
where's that drive for action
Have I taken my last ride?

I used to never have regrets,
but now they weigh me down.
I'm a king whose castle burns
barely clinging to his crown.

I used to be the rebel
destroying all monarchy,
but like all revolutions do
I've embodied tyranny.

  Aduthood is never what we expected it to be. At some point the rebel soul actually turns to look back and sees the carnage that youthful certainty can create, and it can be paralyzing. So it's time to look for perhaps a gentler cause because we all need purpose. One step at a time to break the stillness. Thanks for posting. Jaycee

  That was quite something. When one passes to adulthood one expect a new perspective or some found fight to struggle in. Then it turns out you are still looking at the world through your eyes. I admire you ability to put those feelings to prose. Please continue and you may yet find what you are looking for.
