Poem: Because of Me

Did you hear me or was I too loud?

I tried to scream, but I did not like the sound.

The way the earth shakes as my eyes open.

Tells me that maybe I will not make it.

That I am the root to the destruction the world sees.

That I hurt my people just so I could feel the pain.

I cry my tears so they could feel my pain.

Then I dream that they came.

When my eyes open, I realize everything was the same.

Nobody came.

Then I remember that it is all because of me.
