I wrote this in 2007 when I was a teenager. I am no longer a teenager, but this still remains my favorite poem I've ever written. It was published into my high school yearbook.

Contradiction

© Storm Campbell

So full of deceit,
My life's a contradiction.
One day it's reality,
The next one it's fiction.

I'm lost without reason
Because I made it so
To increase the complexity
And force myself to grow.

I'm so full of life today,
But tomorrow it dies.
I'm so full of optimism,
But a pessimist cries.

The two extremes of who I am
Are what I hate to be.
I’m so scared to waste it,
Then scared to run free.

Can I live it day by day,
Or do I even dare?
I'm so full of wonder now,
But tomorrow I won't care.
