Poetry

No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of another.
Charles Dickens

The Person I Long To Be
 By Victoria A. Mogyorosi

The day light breaks again
Another day has begun.

But still no sleep has come.
My body is weary

My mind overworked.
I lie awake thinking

But what I am unsure.
I need to break free from the cycle I endure.

Everyday is the same and the nights are undistinguished.
I feel as though I am being pushed along with the tide

Unable to break free from the everyday flow.
This is not me I need to change, before time takes over

And I am unable to change.
I need to be freed from the grasp of ordinary

And become that person I have always longed for.
Express myself in every way, and conquer the dreams as I lie awake.

Then I may fall asleep and put my mind to rest.
Make changes in my life and help those in need.

I would like to touch everyone's life in a positive way
And leave my mark on society before I fade away.

  1. SO true. I think the older we get, the easier it is to do the same thing over and over again without change. Change is good it's just hard to do. I think everyone wishes their epitaph said they had a positive influence on someone or something. Great poem & quote.

  2. My life is a rut by necessity. 27 horses make for a daily routine. When the routine is broken it's usually not good! Someday I'll have a life. : )

    I have a yearbook from 7th grade. Someone wrote in it "You are a hard worker". All those years ago, someone saw my future! That will be my epitaph, I fear. "She was a hard worker".

I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
