I've Live

My mind is lost within years
For myself I really fear
My eyes a waterfall of tears
So my vision so blurr and smear

My heart desolated to burn
As I desperately seek and yearn
A burden of stress and concern
I have really no where else to turn

Life to me is unfair
I have no love to give to care
No happiness no joy to share
To smile for once - I rare

In my heart I wish for love
Filled with beauty from above
Elegant like a white velvet dove
Off a cliff I fall, they shove

Not knowing I questioned why
They answered with words of deny
Trusting myself I can't rely
So let me go to hide, to die

My life filled with stress
My thoughts but a mere mess
Wanting to live a life of bless
To honor a truth-I confess

To live my life in my dreams
A perfect life I lead it seems
Happiness to glare and gleam
And purify water trickled in streams

As I opened my eyes to see
No one around on this planet but me
I guess it was just meant to be
I lived my life in reality

I want my sorrow to disappear
To turn my life I've often steer
My forward vision so sheer
My life is to end so near

I haven't found happiness in awhile
My life so squared and shadowed with tiles
No image, no heart, no style
When is it my turn, for once to smile

Oh heavenly father, take it away
Lift this burden off me today
My life I am willing to pay
In fear I began to pray

I am really hurting emotionally
Unable to think mentally
Not capable of handling it physically
But to ask for help spiritually

What my future holds I clutch
For I desperately await in such
I want some answer so much
To peek a scene I wish to touch

My life trapped like a mend
For who in my time to depend
My mind to free I've send
I await my life to end...

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
