Untold Chronicles (Part 1)

Untold Chronicles (Part 2)

From humble beginnings,

To living like a king

To humble endings,

My life’s story, has a solid middle

But they,

People,

Only consider what they see.

Never mind,

That at one point

I was once

One of you,

You look at me,

With eyes of disdain

As I look at you.

Pardon my liquor filled breath

But what you see

As a habitat for livestock

Is what I call home,

Funny thing though,

It moves, with me,

Wherever I please.

See,

I talk and kid with myself

To maintain my sanity,

Drowning

In rationed liquor,

I am my own company.

Scraping and scrounging

Trying to survive

In a world full of people,

Unwilling to help

What am I to them except

A speed-bump on the road?

Dying would be so simple

Easy even,

Plenty of broken glass

In my trusty trash can,

A well-placed slit

And that’s it.

But no, I choose not to

My will to live

Is not governed

Or driven by you

And your careless stares.

I’ve survived this long

Living on scraps

And my hope, for a better day

Through the belief

Of a higher existence.

I once became a king

In your world

With little to no help,

And if it happened once

It can surely happen again.

5 Day Photo/ Story Challenge Day 1

The Chaser Of Dreams nominated me for the 5 Day Photo/ Story Challenge, its been really interesting so far. You can check out her blog here.

 

The Guidelines:

Post a picture each day for five consecutive days. Attach a story to accompany
*can be fiction / non-fiction
*poem / short paragraph
*each day nominate another blogger

Moral of the story here is that no-one is superior or inferior to anyone, we’re all equals. In turn, don’t ever assume you have nothing more to learn from those you think are not worthy of your time.

For my Day 2 nomination I choose my good friend Dorinda. You can visit her blog at Night Owl Poetry

 

Later people! 🙂
