I know your story
Rambling on and on
Unable keep up with the pace
Can't please your friends
Or yourself
So upseting are those basic facts

Trace the path you crawl
Walked it ten thousand times before
To a place that you loathe
It seems to get longer each day

I know your type
Overworked and worn to the bone
Tired eyes and heavy hands
Abused by the world
You hide inside yourself
Because it hurts

They laugh at you
Don't care about you
Their actions speak louder than words
They look through you

Losing your mind
A frustrating life
Always searching
So many problems
Never finding answers
Why tell your heart?
No one cares
Or cares to listen
No one to offer sympathy

Hard to trust in yourself
What more can you lose?
Wish it could be a little different
Step into the fresh air
Let out a deep sigh

Built a little place inside your heart
You always were so kind
People trampled over feelings
Fake smiles is all you show
When were you last yourself
Always looking for inspiration
Never seeming to fit
That's why you look for affection

Your mind is slipping away
Stress is bottled up
You feel pushed aside
Afraid to show your face
Only feel like a joke
Can't think within these four walls
Can't settle the past

It all seems so complex
That's where the need was born
The need to get away
Try to isolate yourself
While seperating your mind

To others it seems easy
To just get by
To you the stress has built inside
It depresses you to no extent
Happiness would come if it all went away

The moments of truth in our life
The times of enlightenment
Is there any use
The questions don't go away
"Am I any use
To anyone??
"To anything?"

Holding in stress
And emotions
About to crack
No reason to go on
Where do you go from here
Make some changes
...

Gotta say, I like it a lot...don't like that I can relate to some of it...haha, but that's alright. I'd pick a favorite part out, but every time I look at one stanza, I see another that's just as good. So yeah, very nice indeed =D

Thank you for your kind words regarding my poem. I'm very happy you liked it. I like it when people can see a bit of themselves in my work. I can relate to the poem as well, but that's apparant since I was the author. :)

oh my god, this is fantastic. I dont have a favorite part because it is all so powerful. I am reminded of my self in this poem. The saddness, the fake smiles, and the non-reality of reality. Everything to fade in to one big THING and the only way you know how to cope with things is to makes joke and appear fine. This is a very strong and emotionally driven poem and it is so...wow. thanks for posting this one.
