My Darkest Hour

Rating: 4.6
It's not just the falsely accused
That suffer
It's the children, the parents
The sister, the brother.

It's not just the horror
Of a person's false claim,
It's the band-wagon jumpers
That blacken your name

It's not just suspicion
That causes your hell
It's the following and hounding
That compounds it as well.

It's not just observing
But making it known
To the local community
Accusations were thrown

I hit rock bottom,
A deep, dark despair
I reached out for someone,
But no-one was there.

Somehow, I got through it
Came out the other side
With all the emotions
Of the rockiest ride.

A time to feel anxious,
A time to cry
A time best forgotten,
Moved on from, passed by

Can identify with this one - people can be so cruel and thoughtless, often in an attempt to feed their own egos. Very well written.

Not sure if it was written from personal experience, but you accurately relayed the impact, not only on the accused, but also on them closest to them. I have been accused of many crimes, and I only committed half of them. Yeah, pick on the pirate!

This was obviously written from a close personal experience. I know the feeling of people trying to disparage you publicly and hoping for some dialogue from which they can ingratiate themselves with others by puting you down. I have done the Ghandi thing and entered into non-engagement denying them what they desire. Works also for children. I know this is not the same but the vibe of misery is. Especially when it is unavoidable. Good poem bad time.
