Bad Poetry: Embarrassing Reveal Part 11

Oct 25, 2017 | designingLULA

I visited my parents in Texas and pulled out from the dusty depths of my old bedroom closet, a box. It had been stored at the bottom of this closet for a multitude of years. I kind of knew what was in it but over the years had forgotten about the memories that awaited. Well to my horror and surprise, there was pages upon pages of teen angst poetry. It’s so, so bad that it’s almost good in its horribleness.

So in the spirit of this blog of designingLULA, it would be a shame if I didn’t share some of these gems into the psyche of my teen angst self. Hahaha…enjoy.


Incline of Faith
(undated, sometime between 1991-1994)

Like the obstacles in life
As cold and giving as ice
They rise and rise again
Beating dead beats to my heart
Conquer I will
For no obstacle will hold me
My faith like a glacier
Drifting freely through the open sea
I will conquer all
The dead beat will play no more
