Perfect Poem About My Life

I attempt now to write
the perfect poem about my life; the pen
glides freely on the paper, the frictions
bring to life memories of the past. . . it's tiresome,
a tiresome process.

I would rather imagine a life
perfect; a serene day as cinematic
as a Martin Scorsese imagery; I
would rather paint my life on a
Wacom cintiq; but I can not
write the perfect poetry about
my life.

Because what is there to be so
proud of, proud of to be telling: I'm
no winner of any WWE royal
rumble or hell-in-a-cell match;
I'm no wrestler — what to say
that I've fought against invisible
shadows, all my life?

How to be proud of — when I say
I like many girly (ASMR?) things to do; like
cooking and baking, providing comfort to
others, caressing them, watching
them cut wood — the sound of
it — I love it!

How to utter the unspeakable truth
that I've lived my life — the
larger portion of it — as a mental
vagabond — unemployed —
unemployable?

Now that I've written this poem, I'm
struggling how to finish it, I'm
no Triple~H, and I've no cutting
edge finisher, like his Pedigree.
I say goodbye to you all!
Be safe, be healthy, love
the young, respect the elderly.

Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye

(I'll meet you
in the next poem.)

It's a pleasant surprise when my first published poem gets a nod from one of the best poets on HubPages. Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment.

I shall dig deeper, and try to frame better poems.

I think it's difficult to describe our own life. It is much easier to look upon a reflection of others.

Each of us are unique. I am certain you have touched others in a way you have not realized.

Dig deep.
