Given

What I gave.

It was never about what I could get

But what could be given

not just for me…

And all of myself was given away

to the low and to the proud

to the ones that stole my sky

Watch me laid there

empty and cry….

She said she was not deserving of me

Silly girl, reality lies…

We all deserve some kind

Beauty unspoken

Normal does not define these lines

When confidence sank in

She develops a sick grin ..

She craved better than what was in…

 

This is how she failed me…

Not seeing the gift that frees

It was never about what I could get…

It was never about what she could get…

But what could I give…

And I’ve given all of me!

Lost forever

Words never to be spoken of Again…

This is really all of me.

All i ever gave was,

all of me…

About jachso

Hey Destiny Poets. I live in Denmark about 90 km from Copenhagen and works in Roskilde as a teacher and mentor. I'm probably not like most men of my age and yes I am aged 50 years old. I've tried a lot of jobs without finding what I'm passionate about. Writing, I have always loved and I was probably just 14 years old when I produced my first poem. I have not yet been released some of my poems, but I hope it happens one day. I just finished a novel which I would like to have published, now the time and talent show whether I have the ability to write. Poetry has a special meaning for me and this is where I really feel at home. My life has sometimes been marked by many losses. In the mid eighties, I lost my fiance at the time when the accident happened was pregnant. She lost control of the car and drove herself and her child, who was on his way thereby, to death. It has really made its mark on my life and way of thinking. In the late nineties, I had problems with my back and had to seek other avenues to support myself. I finally decided to enroll at university and was admitted to the humanist line. I read philosophy, science, psychology, journalism and history, but philosophy and psychology is my major interest. I thrive today in the RUC aka Roskilde University just 25 km from Copenhagen. My job is to guide and teach, and it is a job with speed and that gives me a lot again. I have two collections of poems ready to be released, if I can find a publisher who will publish them. I have no children, it would obviously be my lot in life although I have tried, but luck never smiled at me that way. If you have any questions for me so I hope you just ask away all you want, I'll respond as soon as I have read the questions. With kindest regards from Jan Sorensen
