Sadness - Poem by Abraham John Jaggernauth

Deep within, on the inside, I feel a cry, a terrible mire; a hole within, a sickness inside.
Beneath the smiles, beneath the hi's, a feeling of sadness, that tears my insides.
To express it best, words I cannot confess, but written out, it lessens the stress.
Why has this come, as if a test, the deepest parts, are without rest. Looking within I seek to rest, but find out things that leave me restless.
The best of me is hidden beneath,
and more and more I seek to be free; I fight for what's alive in me, I fight until I cannot feel.
The truth is the best is loss, and my only hope is to be redeemed; but as of now the only thing I feel, is the sadness within that feels most real.
