My Flame - Poem by sarah baron

'Move on'
are words of advice
that carry me through
the day and night

I beat myself up,
and tear myself down
i can't escape
this permanent frown

Its almost like
I'm completely gone
I have no light
i have no sun

My life is dark
i can't quite see
2 to 10 feet
in front of me

My mind is racing
twisting and turning
i'm out of control
and find myself burning

burning with
a different flame
all because
i'm hidden in shame

ashamed of what
i have become
and because of that
i am done

i've said it before
i'll say it again
i'm gonna finish
before i begin

i'm done with this
i'm done with depression
that no longer counts
as my greatest obsession

the flame i had
was gloomy and dark
all i need
is another spark

i need the spark
of good and light
to ignite my flame
to do the right

there is a difference
between right and wrong
because happiness
is where i belong

'move on'
my flame of advice
will carry me through
the day and night.
