I must admit that I have often thought
of leaving it all behind and letting everything go
I was lost and alone, as I always am,
So many people around me,
Yet no one seems to care.
They say they understand and love me very much,
But just when I Trust to love, they forget and move on.
I held the knife so close
as tears, mixed with blood,
Began to fall slowly.
Like a foolish child I cried.
Knowing that I could end it all now
made my mind draw a blank.
I put the knife away and tried to wipe the blood,
that ran faster than I can describe.
I knew suicide wasn't the answer I was looking for.
I knew there was a reason for me being alone.
So many bad things happening at once -
They can make you forget
About the good qualities of life.
Even though life is hard,
and trouble an inevitable part of it.
If you decide to leave it all behind,
maybe you will,
but I can guarantee that others
....Your Mistake will haunt
The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being.
His heart withers if it does not answer another heart.
His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration.
- Pearl S. Buck
Wow, that was a great poem. I once knew the pain that is being portrayed here. This life can be cruel, but even I have realized that there is a meaning for everything. Fights can even lead to togetherness, which I found out through my love. No one will ever understand how things work, because no one is God. I love the work though.
