Not Myself

I haven’t been myself lately
Just an echo of everybody else
I’m half convinced they half hate me
But it may just be they hate themselves

I’ve not been breathing well lately
I hold my breath like everybody else
Only half alive, and half crazy
Waiting for goodness or magic or elves

I’ve been thinking some of hell lately
It’s here with everybody else
The more I hear and the more I see
The deeper the dark inside of me delves

  1. Astute observation about hate, Rachel. Those apt to disdain others usually (or always, really) think poorly of themselves. Their self-loathing hurts them, and they attempt to divert that pain by lashing others.

    A really good way to put that in perspective, my friend.
