Personal Personification At Its Best


Why *does* it always seem that *I* come out behind?

Or that I seem to never win or lose. How can that be?

Is it fate that weakens me or joys that’s strengthen me?

(bloody aye make up your bleep-in mind!)

Why does it seem we can’t figure this anathema out?

Is Life really this way and is all it is really cracked up to be?

I am middle-aged,- look a zillion years old,-

feel two years old,- act mentally challenged,-

and have nothing of worth of true value;

yet was born with a silver spoon in my mouth

and has a silver linen pockets in my coat tails.

(Spoiled rotten I am and this makes me depressed!)

I eat Fruit-Loops for breakfast, Cracker-Jacks for lunch,

for supper I eat dead meat, and for desert it is Ice-Cream Sunday.

(I am definitely not dealing with full deck of cards here; now am I!)

Why is it I diet to impress people yet I gorge out depressed

for the same reason I diet which is because of depression?

No matter the impression I leave it is never the one I want to imply.

I want to leave my mark on society in this happening world

but life falters me setting me behind everyday I get back up

after I have been flatten being knocked down on my feet.

I promise you this world that I will give you everything I have

till my waking days are no more. Hey it is just the way I am.

The abundance of questions in the piece by the speaker is a capability unique to man. The reflection on defining one's value and creating it is what Maslow calls self-actualization. The lines below are clinically insightful
