I Want a Slice

I Want a Slice

i look at other people
i want a slice
of something they have
which i assume,
i have not got
ask me what it is though
either i do not know,
or i have forgot

i think everyone else
is damaged like me
but some,
appear to hide it a little better
they can,
put it on or hold it together

i cling to the sea wall
in the most adverse weather
i know,
all this,
is one of those mind illusions
deeply entrenched,
childhood deception or confusion

do other people look at me
and make judgements
or a person i could never be?
