RealTalk Poetry • Dealt My Hand


My life has been flawed
and my life has been hard.

I got dealt my hand
and I played the wrong card.

I got dealt my options
and mistook them as hard.

But, my mistakes made me strong.
My mistakes made me smart.

My mistakes left me pain,
with a hole in my heart.

So, please give me time
and I’ll tell you it all.

Then maybe you’ll see
why I’ve put up this wall.
