    Why even bother?

    I constantly try,
    yet never succeed.
    Putting forth effort
    only to bleed.

    Perpetually giving
    it all that I've got;
    Always acting like
    someone I'm not.

    Doing my best to
    lead a good life;
    but always being jabbed
    in the back with a knife.

    Tired of trying
    when I can only fail.
    Tired of losing
    my way on this trail.

    It seems all is lost
    and I'll never be found,
    so just let my lie here
    by myself on the ground.

    Why waste my time if
    I'll never succeed?
    What is the point if
    I'm just going to bleed?

    This one makes me think if that "staircase" I'm always trying to get to the top of. I keep walking up but always walking in place or slowing crawling up... getting knocked down a lot. ... Yeah, that's what I think of ... when I read this.

    Thanks, I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one walking up an escalator that's heading in the opposite direction.

    I don't think my staircase is moving at that rate; ha-ha! but, I've noticed myself giving the staircase speech to a lot of people.

    Excellent poem, atomik. A little depressin', but sometimes that's how it goes. This poem kinda reminds me of the old sayin', "It's not the destination, but the journey along the way that matters." I understand that the road of life can b rough and that it seems like u're goin' no where fast, and BOY have I been there more than a few times; lol, but I hang in there and try ta enjoy the "little joys" along the way. Life's full of ups and downs, and I've seen more "downs" than "ups", and this poem reminds me ta hold on ta the precious memories out there that we make. Thanks for the poem, man.

    Sanity doesn't exist, it's just an excuse cooked up by crazy people to justify their actions. My myspace page: www.myspace.com/joemage

    And thank you for your encouraging words. I appreciate that. You should consider motivational/public speaking. You've got a way with words and you've got a knack for spotting that silver lining behind every cloud. Plus, as you said, you've been through some things; so personal experience is a plus. ^_^ Look at me rambling, LOL. Thanks again for your comments and support, Joe. I needed the helpful words.
