I Hold The Sun In My Hands||Review for Review

October 5, 2020


As I wake up each morning
I hold unrelenting darkness in my mind

My heart, filled with exhaust
Beats anxiety through my veins

Loneliness fills my stomach so
I have no space for breakfast

Glaring, hating eyes
They burn holes through my back

With each unwanted breath
I inhale sadness like the sweetest aroma

Each insult and unkind word
None affect me, I've thought them all about myself

My brain is a cruel place to be alone
It tosses me around and slams me down when i'm already at my lowest

But as each though in my mind, beat of my heart,
expand of my lungs, growl of my stomach,
insult and hateful word attack me.

I know I will be okay in the end.
Because I, a beautiful creature, I hold the sun in my hands
I don't write poems, so this is my first one. Please excuse me if it's not very good.

    I think it’s a very good poem. I really like how you touch on a different quality/emotion in each stanza

    This is so lovely. And strong. Wonderful work here.

    ...and for the record, Jesus taught to love everyone. Period. Us humans just screw that up a lot.
