Eyes Of The Strong - Poem by Sierra Staten

I'm fading, fading fast.
Only one thing crosses my mind as I near death -you.
Knowing you are so much stronger than I,
Knowing you survived much bigger problems than I could face;
I feel guilty.
Why should I be sad when I have so much to live for?
I can't make sense of it.
I try to be happy, but I never succeed.
I find guilt in all my pleasures.
Despite my efforts I couldn't rescue the girl I used to be.
I don't deserve to be with somebody so strong,
somebody who's had it much worse, and yet is so happy.
Your bright eyes mock me, and I love them.
I will remember them.
I can't live without them.

    Enuff already now ur making me depressed lol have you ever thought of directing ur anger issues at someone else? I would if I was you... Opens up a whole new world of creative expression when you reject self pity and embrace properly channeled hatred lol (Report) Reply
