Poetry On Odyssey: The Self-Angst Sonnet

Nothing that I do ever turns out right.

At this point, I don’t know why I am not surprised,

But my friends haven’t yet left out of fright,

Still, maybe it won’t be long till they’ve realized

There is this curse that lies in my veins,

It has consumed and haunted me for many years,

A curse that is strong and brings me such strains,

It feeds on my deepest insecurities and fears

Insecure, anxious, lonely, that girl is me,

Appearances can be quite deceiving.

It’s hard to believe that it’s how I could be,

But I wish you could get a closer look at the life I’m leading.

Do not be fooled, I do have friends,

They are just too good to me...my curse never ends
