I Want to Die

I wish I could just die
But when I look up in the sky
All I can see
Is a chance to be free?

I still hate life
It’s like being stabbed by a knife
Life is a pain
Sometimes I’ll cut the vein

It’s so dark
I can’t even see a spark
It’s so black
God please cut me some slack
I can’t see my way
I must be far away

I’ve been places
And seen so many faces
They all were hurt
I wasn’t the only one that felt like dirt
We’re all in pain
It’s something you don’t want to gain
Why are we all here?
We just want to disappear
We can only see
One chance to be free
And that is with death
So let’s take one last breath

But what if we don’t want to die
But I don’t understand why
Wait yes I do
Because I caught the flew
I’m contagious for you
I helped save you
A funeral is not what I want to attend to

Still sometimes I wonder
While outside all I hear is thunder
Do I want to die?
But I don’t want anyone to cry

When I’m dead
Just remember what I said
I’m not saying I’m going to die
Is I do I’ll say goodbye

No one will say that I died
Because I still need a bride
I don’t want anyone crying
Then my hopes will be dying

Whenever I do die
I’m sure people will cry
But remember when you’re crying
I’ll be in the sky flying
I won’t be under ground
But for now I promise I’m still around

I’m not always perfect
Or even correct
Nobody is
This is my quiz
I hope you understand what I’m trying to say
But you have to understand life can be gray

When you’re down
Think of a clown
Unless you don’t like them
Then think of a gem

    Das Leben mich vollstreckt,
    Und das ich wähle,
    Nur denn der Tod
    Ist mir verständlich mehr. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
