Explode - Poem by Lizelle 'Leasel' Martins

I am alive
I am awake
I am present
But yet half awake

Walking slowly
Carefully
On eggshells
In my own being
Before everything crumbles
Who hears my cries
Who will come to my aid
This shaky world of mine...?

I am exploding
Words suffocating me
A Time bomb
Ready to rupture
I can't contain this anymore
Drowning in my own brokenness

I am afraid
Afraid who I might become
When I do

    The plight of a person under a sort of depression correctly narrated. It is, however, necessary to remember that life is full of ups and downs and dawn follows a night. Thus, one must struggle to come out of depression to greet the waiting dawn of happiness. Thanks for sharing.10 points. (Report) Reply
