What Is Rightfully Mine (In The Works)

Depression made me sad
angry made me mad
these pills have made me numb
I have lost all emotions
so now what do I do
for I cried when I was sad
I screamed inside when I was mad
and now I just sit there staring at the wall
doing nothing
slowly becoming nothing
how do I fight this numbness
it has not only taken my emotions
but my strength as well
for I am left with no energy
I am left with nothing
so how is it
that I claim back what is rightfully mine
for I need my strength
I need my energy
I need to fight this numbness
for maybe happiness
is what lays beyond this numbness
for I have felt everything else but happiness
so it must be next
therefore I must not give up
I no longer want to give in
I want my share of happiness
and I will fight for it
so how do I go about claiming what is rightfully mine
for I have been robbed of so much already and did nothing
this time I will not just sit here
I will not let them rob me of this
I will now fight back
I need this more than ever
I need my strength
I need to win this fight
so I can start my battle for happiness

    Oh, the numbness the misery brokers dispense. Underlying spirit of defiance is refreshing. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
