I wrote this poem on a day where I felt so trapped by other people's problems.


I’m not a hero
Or a saint
But a human being
Not soaring above standards
Or standing far back
I’m in the middle of everything
Of your life and hers
Trying to be a hero
That I’m not
And a saint
To save you
And everyone else.
I give it all to God
To save everyone
For I have cried
And I have weeped
And my strength is gone.

Sometimes we really know how human we truly are, don't we? Good job on your poem.

Your poem tells exactly how i feel sometimes when everyone comes running to me with their boyfriend/girlfriends problems, and expect me to know all the answers. They forget I'm a person too, with problems and issues of my own. I hope to see more of your poetry
