Despair - Poem by Kris Estep

From where I stand I have no faith,
I look around and see only hate.
Stuck in pain I cannot wake,
From this nightmare that is my fate.
All around me darkness lies,
From which I see not beyond my eyes.
I met this one who shown a light,
Only to have them turn into my plight.
Such hurt, such pain inside of me,
Ever enduring it always seems.
I'm told 'Have faith, I will be saved, '
I think to myself, you're all insane.
For all and all I am alone,
Left in this darkness that I must roam.
From these pits of my despair,
I have learned to never care.

    Such a sad poem. I think you need faith in the one that really controls your destiny first....yourself. You sound like a strong person, keep writing. Good luck. Sincerely, Mary (Report)Reply
