Throwback Thursday Poetry: My Time to Fight

living in the world
growing up with all the lies
crashing through reality
i’m lost inside my mind
nothing’s getting better
yes it makes me want to cry
believing the insanity
with no one asking why

asking myself questions
that i never realized
forcing you to think things through
pressing this all the time
think of yourself and nothing else
be honest true and kind
stay away from me today
this is my time to fight

Early poetry from James. From the poetry collection Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry.
