Poem: Just Question

Trying to see the light, but it is too bright.

Trying to find the hope, but I just do not care.

Looking for love that others seem to share.

Not thinking about the present worrying about things that I did not do.

My tears are real, but to you they just do not hit the mark.

Why do I live in this much pain?

Why is it hard for me escape the things?

This is not what I want, but it is feeling like something that I deserve.

I have never been an angel, but the devil never met me.

I just want to go.

Go to a place that most would call home.

Maybe then I will get some rest and finally be at peace.

Poem: No More

Another day I have awoken with a breath.

Another day I wish that would not be.

Trying to see the light, but I keep getting surrounded by the shadows.

Asking why are you keeping me?

Why can I not go to the land where my people are free?

Not hearing the answer that I want but hearing the answer that people think I need.

This is not my just because this is not a celebration.

This is years of heartache and pain.

Years of not living a life.

Years of worrying about the cause and effect from others.

To taking the pain you store to yourself.

My heart can no longer break.

I shattered it years ago a day I came to be.

Now it is no more and soon so will I.
