I Give Up - Poem by Amanda Ford

Used and abandoned, ill sit in this chair
And cry my tears softly so no one can hear

Tired of bein used and hurt beyond repair,
Life has lost all meaning, why am I still here?

I work all day, I work all night
Homework and lonliness, all that’s left in my life

A love I cant hold, a life that’s not real
And even then, there’s nothing I feel

So ill sit all alone, as my life rolls on by
With my feelings my enemy, all I can ask is why?

When he gets what he wants, he soon is gone
And I’ve stopped caring whats wrong or whats right

Apparently forever means only one night
But who cares? ‘cuz there’s nothing left in my life

Live for today cuz tomorrow’s a mirror image
Once and for all, my love is lost in the distance

Im exhausted, tired of being tired,
Today, tomorrow, yesterday, all just a blur

When without even a drink, my words start to slur
My poems have no meaning, I’ve become a disgrace

I used to rhyme, with rhythm and wit,
But here I sit, alone and lost in me

Where am I? Who am I?
Where am I going? Where have I been?

I’m lost and confused…
All I need is a friend.

    you know whats kool? as i read the last line in your poem, a song came into my head and the line that came to mind was, 'what a friend we have in Jesus.' i know you may not believe in Him or have even heard of Him. but itll be ok. whatever hard times youre going through, itll be ok. this might sound really weird coming from a complete stranger, but if you need someone to listen or to talk to, im here for you. it sounds weird, i know, but its true. im here for you. hope is never lost.
