To put it to you plain
I feel so insane
So much pain
From my brain
Hot tears run down my brown face
I get surrounded by sadness
And drowned in misery
To me it’s a mystery
Where all the pain comes from
It bubbles up inside of me
Causing me great agony
I wonder how to be free of tragedy
Thoughts of suicide run through my head
But deep down I know I won’t be better off dead
If I could just get around the pain and the tear stains
I want to remain but I need a change
I wonder if I can continue in this vein
Every day seems such a strain
Daily now depression grips me in an angry fist
I try to twist and persist I resist
I need to see a therapist to assist
My days disappear in too many tears
Too many fears
Too many hard years


  1. there's a brighter day ahead,see what hangin in happens for you. God Bless

  2. There's an inner trick I use for these situations. It's like putting your feelings on hold while you pick up a spider that's freaking out your kids, without letting them know it's freaking you out too. Just know the feeling will pass, stand aside and watch it fade, as if it's not really anything to do with you. Not easy, but it can be done. God bless you.

  3. What rhyme and rhythm, wow. Reminds me of Wordsworth who said that 'poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquillity'.

  4. I've been there, man. Sometimes our best art comes out of such moments. Dig this poem...

  5. One can actually feel the pain through your poem!!! It's intense and deep.
