A man who lives

In shame for his

Lack of providing

For himself and

Those that he Loves


Lonely nights spent

Wondering who

Would look upon

Him with pride


This man sometimes

Gives in to his

Weakness and self

Destructs his world

With great regret

In the days following


Though he is not

Completely broken

His motivation is

Twisted and skewed

Into an ugly mess


He feels like he

Is less then his

Fellow man, an

Embarrassment to

His own kind


How can this man

Pick himself up

From the ashes

Cultivated by

Circumstance and

His own poor choices
