Have you ever doubted your purpose? Have you been trying to beat the depression and escape the deep end of the pool? It’s that little piece of hope and faith that’ll pull you through. Life’s all about being open minded, honest, and willing. It’s about knowing there’s a power greater than yourself. This poem was written on a darkened mind racing night full of self hate and a dash of hope.
Let me show you the good, so I can hide the bad
smile real big so you want see me sad
sometimes I can’t take life, I get so mad
I suffocate, then I remove the bag.
I have too much to see to give up just yet
I have to keep breathing, so I catch my breath
I know everything that comes my way is just a test
I pass them one by one and plan to do so with the rest.
I’m staying in school and have to finish this degree
even though life’s a struggle and shit don’t come free
we to often try to face too much alone and we lag to get on a knee
God I pray that you please don’t give up on me.
There is reasoning behind each and every thing
you just have to figure out what’s worth the pain.
Figure it out and that’s what you fight for
the things that aren’t you walk out and shut that door
along the path to success, trust me, you’ll again fall to the floor
that’s when you find it in yourself to fight some more
put back on that smile and never show if your hearts sore
and to keep you lifted up is what friends are for.
Love all people and show them respect
the ones that don’t, sooner or later will regret …
… Because feeling all alone is no fucking fun
so be nice to others and deliver them some sun.
I want a good job, a family, the American Dream
but sometimes I wonder what if that’s not what’s meant for me
until then I’ll keep my head up, in order to see
because I have too much potential to give up in a world with endless possibilities.
