Dont Give Up - Poem by Charlene Rawson

emptiness over taking my life,
sadness turns into reality,
day dreams becoming an everyday episode,
lost, scared your never find your way back to happiness,
looking on your past trying to pick out the memories,
all that's coming to the surface is the weakness on both sides,
feelings drifting further away,
all the wonders in the world, all the answers left lingering
cant tell the difference from wrong or right,
bored of this fight
fed up of sitting alone at night trying with all my might to find whats missing
people tell me to hold on tightly to life
i turn my head, i see faces stare, not one hand held out
rapists take your dignity rip your inside apart and leave you for dead
men worm themselves into your life's, into your heart to stab you in the back
whilst telling you your worthless,
not only leaving scars on your heart they left there mark until im dead
just how low does someone has to see you
some have a bad up bringing yet they say hold on tightly
i would have said give up on life because they want to see you dead,
now im saying embrace every step you take,
life gets better it may takes years,
we all get there in the end
don't let your fears eat away at you,
i learnt im not alone there's people there who will reach out and grab your hand,
there are people who understand.. just be strong! !
