It’s not always easy to be happy. Sometimes it’s hard. At times you have to say it all. It’s painful to feel as if you’re losing hope. So let the pain pour forth. Speak your heart because it is sometimes necessary.
Pouring Out That Pain— Losing Hope
I don’t know how to cope,
I’m losing my hope and strength.
I’ve given up all.
My heart is burdened, and soul tearing.
I’m not sure if I’m really alive;
I write to pour out my pain,
But this bottle keeps filling up again.
My life is becoming a bloody game
I don’t think I want to live anymore.
I keep waiting for things, I know will never happen again.
This waiting is killing me from within.
I try to smile, but I can’t even fake one.
I’m on pills to lower my depression, but
I know they’re not helping me in this condition.
I feel like I’m dying on the inside, and
Most of the times, I’m at a loss for what to do.
My poems no longer rhyme.
My brain is shutting down, my heart is crying, and
All I want to do is pass this life on,
To someone who truly wants to live.
I’m exhausted and terrified.
I know, no one comes here to live forever.
But, yes, life can be hell at times.
Some life events can make you wish to die.
Sometimes it’s difficult to sleep,
At times, it’s difficult to breathe, and
Often it all seems to be turned upside down.
The play we all call ‘Life’ can be challenging and dangerous at times.
Some Paths Must Be Crossed Alone
They say that hard times do not last forever, but there are times when you feel completely alone in your pain and are unable to tell anyone what you are going through because you fear they will not understand. Writing helps a lot in such a situation because it allows the pain to come out. Life can be difficult, and the pain can kill you from inside like a termite eats wood. We all face difficulties in life, but some paths must be crossed alone.
Sometimes life can seem hard, but it’s not necessarily because you’re doing something wrong, it may be because you are doing something right.
