Glutton for Punishment

I am not a poet, but I do write poems for class, when I have to.

I have oft thrown myself against hard rock
Trying to find out if I can feel it
Never once have I stopped to a heed a thought
My actions were not really needed

Iíve spent my whole life trying to find ways
To convince myself Iím still breathing
Never once have I in all my days
Found out what I really was seeking

It is sad but itís true this I know
Hereís a habit I never will break
Tilí the bruises at once start to show
Itís too much for a body to take

So as long as my nature demands
Iíll fight my demons with my bare hands
