i am sick

(wethersfeild ct united states)
I am sick,
Sick of this lifestyle
I am weak,
But with this weakness I find strength
I am cold,
And in this coldness I need warmth
I am hungry
But with this hunger I feel full.
I am loved
But with this love I feel hatred
I am hurt
Although I'm hurt I feel no pain
I have success
But my successfulness is failure
I am sad
Yet in this sadness I find joy.
I am angry,
But with this anger I feel calm
I am brave
But with this braveness I am scared
I am satisfied
But satisfaction is not fulfillment
I am free
But in my freedom, I am bound.
I am blinded
but through this blindfold I can see
I am in control
but this control is controlling me.
I am in denial
but denying it helps me to admit...
I am small,
but in this smallness, I see fat
