Asphalt Angel


Iconoclastgrey Word Artist

It is late at night

But I can’t help but type

Because these words won’t leave my mind

Asphalt angel

How beautiful

Beautiful

Despite

The confusion

The Fear

The feeling as if you are being torn apart

Childhood

Teenage years

The struggle to find some kind

Of identity

These things are harder for us than for some

Anger

Rage

And tears that fall no matter how much you fight them

Some of us don’t have it easy

Can I tell you a secret, kid?

It gets better

I know you don’t believe me now

But I fought and fought and fought

Till I fell down exhausted

But in the end I won

I became an asphalt angel

With wings of stone

And more strength than I thought I would ever have

I flew

Even when I was told I would fall

Never listen to the ones who say you can’t

I have published my debut book of poetry!


Hello, WordPress family! I am excited to tell you that I have published my debut book of poetry!

It is called Spilled Ink and you can get your very own at Lulu.com!

Or if you would like to have me write something neat in it for you; you can find me on Facebook, or Twitter @iconoclastgrey and order them from me personally.

I will also be in California at Origins Coffee and Tea 2168 Sunset Blvd Ste 105 in Rocklin on October 22nd at 7 pm to do a reading and sell some books! Come see me if you are in the area!

Even when I was told I would fall

Never listen to the ones who say you can’t

And one day you will see how glorious you are

Make your own rules

And realize that the real you is wonderful

Flaws and all

Your past is nothing

Your future is everything

So stretch those wings

And soar
