My Confession

by Jeffrey Joseph 4 years ago in sad poetry
Report Story

What I Really Am

I thought I was a giver, not a taker

I thought I was happy, not sad

I thought I was kind, not mean

I thought I was good, not bad

I thought I was light, not darkness

I thought I was something, not nothing

But in reality

I am a user

I am an abuser

I am a thief

I am a liar

I am a con artist

I am a sociopath

I am a sinner

I am a narcissist

I am all that I don't want to be

Yet all that I don't want to be I am

I am an alcoholic
