I woke up this morning
realizing that I’m a criminal

It is a crime to be me.

As soon as I was born
there were bad genes, and

I was destined to be
no one, to cry to
no avail, so

tell me why
anyone should love me

when the day for me to speak
is so short, and I don’t feel
so articulate, no I

don’t feel like the day
is just, just because again
I woke up being no one.

It is a crime to be me
because I’ve done nothing, and
you don’t love me.

— Douglas Gilbert

  1. This is so sad…it is not a crime to be you. You are a beautiful person….I’m sorry you were feeling this way. But I do understand, I feel this way too sometimes…
