Is It Wrong?


Is it wrong to be so young and yet be so full of hate?
Is it wrong that I can never stop telling lies so that no one knows how sad and lonely I am?
Is it wrong that all I want to do is cry but can't?
Is it wrong that I will never be like them?
Is it wrong that I don't feel like part of my family?
Is it wrong that I wish my lies were true?
Is it wrong that I feel as if I have not belonged for so many years?
Is it wrong that I fear being happy?
Is it wrong that all I want is to be at peace and to sleep forever?
Is it wrong that no matter how much I try to keep my feelings secret they still get out some how?
But most importantly.......is it wrong that I have wanted to die for so very many years now?

    Angst, frustration..its explosive! !
    'Is it wrong that I fear being happy? ' so emotional, I especially like this line.
    But it is so sad. Being happy is what makes exsisting in this cruel world worth while so seize every opportunity to be happy.
    It is a great poem..BUT...I still want to read another poem of yours saying how happy you are, 'cause you deserve to be.
    Keep writing. Bless you! Diane... (Report) Reply

    HONESTLY! YES! for not giving yourself the opportunity to peacefully grow and explore the rest of the World! Yes, for limiting your scope in this beautiful life. Yes, for setting up your limited boundaries at such an young age! Yes, for refusing to see the difference in others like they see it in you! Yes, for rushing for a solution for your passing by problems that only can be solved by time! Where you are right now, I was and where I am, one day you will be when you successfully break the links that tie you to your past and freely realize that is time to move on! You broke the ice already by writing this sad and touching poem! 10+++ Outburst of the heart that I hope will soon heals your wound! Keep reading and writing every day! Love and Peace for always!

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
