Wake up!

Wake up!

Wake up.
If that’s the only thing you do.
Wake up and live.
Live standing up
Even if it hurts.
Even if there’s doubt.
It took you long enough
to break away
from the chains
they put around your mind.
Around your body
With their mouths
full of words.
Sometimes you wonder what you were,
before them.
You don’t even remember.
You were just an empty house,
Trying to find a home
Within yourself.
So now that you’ve finally
found yourself
in their shadows,
you're awake
to be you.
So be you! 

I keep writing poems at the moment. What's going on!!


  1. I loved this.

    -Fellow Ether writer.

  2. "Live standing up
    Even if it hurts."
