Poem: I Want to Die

I Want to Die

by Chelsea  L. Bolton

I want to die

says the part of me that’s afraid

I want to live

Says the part of me that’s brave

I want to breathe

Says the part of me that’s seconds from the grave

I want to sing

Says the part of me that speaks

I want to dance

Says the part of me that moves

I want to write

Says the part of me that’s creative

I want to learn

Says the part of me that reads

I want to improve

Says the part of me that strives

I want to have self-worth

Says the part of me that wants to be good enough

I want to love

Says the part of me that wants to be loved

I want to be in love

Says the part of me that wants forever

I want to kiss and make love

Says the part of me that wants pleasure

I want to succeed

Says the part of me that is ambitious

I want to be rid of my anger

Says the part of me that holds on to things that should die

I want to love myself

Says the part of me that loves my Gods

I want to serve

Says the part of me that wants to be a Priestess

I want to own my power

Says the part of me that wants to own my life

I want to clean

Says the part of me that thrives on purity

I want to cheer

Says the part of me that hopes the best for others and myself

I want to live

Says the part of me that hopes

I want to die

Says the part of me that is reborn.
