Some Poetry

My friend James has compiled a book of his poetry. You can check it out or buy a copy if you follow this link:

James Book of Poetry

This is one of his poems.


Scattered shards of broken glass
I feel as if I�m a shadow of my past

Paint me a portrait of how to be
Someone of strength and beauty

All that is left is the void
The strength I once had destroyed

No comfort no support
Do I have to prove anything?
Nothing to be proven only to myself

Shadows seem such a comfort
No one sees
No one hears
Safely hidden in fear

Wanting to run and hide
Simply can not deny

That I am smart
I am brave
I will not cave

To know this
To think is to believe

I am already the man I wish to be
I just need to change what I think
Perceive differently
