I Can'T Escape From Here - Poem by Kathy Liu
Drowning in the despair of my mind,
peace of soul I cannot find.
Demons are raging inside of me,
break my cage and set me free.
Trapped in a vicious game called life,
Sending only pain, loss, and strife.
Maybe one day I can leave this place,
I will be gone, without a trace.
I have no one to leave behind,
free of the war inside my mind.
We wanted to live not suffer,
All our hopes and dreams were smothered.
We're all living, quietly bleeding,
suffering here, painfully breathing.
Nothing to live for, nothing to lose,
years and years of constant abuse,
All this pain will come to an end,
All these wounds that just won't mend.
Scared of this life, I can't carry on,
Crying out loud, but my voice is gone.
Impossible to love, impossible to care,
In this broken land, there's no one there.
With bloody wrists and tearstains, I fall to the floor,
damaged at the heart, which they gladly tore.
Life is too painful, I can't live like this anymore.
