I wish they could see my tears,
I wish they could come face to face with my fears.
I wish they knew how it truly hurts,
So mean words they wouldn’t blurt.
I wish they’d know I’m dying inside,
And see past the smile shown outside.
I wish they’d know how much I hate myself….
….so they will stop
I wish they’d just stop!
I mustered the courage that took forever to gain
I took that step forward
And then just suddenly stopped
I just chocked, I couldn’t continue
He was my bad habit
Difficult to break
Hard to get rid of
But not impossible to end
Work hard as if there’s no tomorrow
But your life is sad, full of sorrow
You try and meet the demands
Take their every command
You feel like being in prison
You ask yourself why you do it, what’s the reason
So you stop and pause
And ask, what is your cause?
You then decided to break from their chains
Their demand isn’t worth your pains
She held her tongue
She held her ground
She could have made a lot of noise
But she chose not to make a sound.
She could have given up
She could have called it quits
She held on despite being broken
And she picked up the all the tiny bits.
She never surrendered even when she could have
Stronger than you think
Where do I start and where do I end?
This is the beginning, also the end.
Sometimes I wish I could shed off the responsibilities
Be a kid and enjoy life, again
I don’t feel like writing
I don’t feel poetic
I don’t feel like rhyming
I’m done trying
I’m just numb today
You look like giving up
I know you feel fed up
About to raise your hands in surrender
About to quit altogether
But before you do
Let me remind you
Losing is winning when you learn from it
Get up and start over
You know you can do it
Did you forget?
