Bad Changes - Poem by Sara Jo Andrews
Hopes dashed among the rocks,
Happiness spreads wings and takes flight,
The light leaves the eyes that once sparkled bright,
But now dull and impassive.
Unable to read the message written there, changes,
Features dulled and dimmed, skin lost that glow, changes,
Shoulders slumped, head down, feet draggin’
Time passing too slowly, but yet too quickly, changes,
Days too dark, not enough light, changes,
Wanting to scream and rant and rave.
Anger, the rage boiling up inside,
Trying to take over all other emotions.
Leaving depression as the aftermath, changes,
Feelin’ weak and weary, walking through this world alone.
Feels like been buried underneath all the weight of the world,
Not supposed to be scared of anything,
But don’t know where am,
Trying hard to breathe, no air in lungs,
Pain inside is making numb,
Not knowing what to do, where to turn,
So tired, wanting to lay down.
But can’t something unknown pushing on,
Stumbling through this dark tunnel,
Looking for the light,
Wondering if I will ever reach the end.
Blind and shaking, bound and breaking, hoping to make it through all these changes,
Can’t help, no one knows,
Get frustrated lately,
Suffocates, changes, changes,
One day I’ll change everything.
