Living a life in vain
Hiding from the light
Fighting tears as teh yelling magnifies
Rebuking, screaming curses of hate back at the faces of pain
Wishing for an end, not wanting to go on
Holding by a thread to this exstence we call living
Hoping beyond hope for a cure
Failure after failure leading me back to a woeful beginning
A beginning unlike any other
A beginning imprisioned by numbers and races

There are some lines in this poem that I really like. 'Holding by a thread to this existence we call living' and 'It all starts with each of these and thus shall end with these as well'. Run a quick spell check. This portion seems vague to me-'Failure after failure leading me back to a woeful beginning/A beginning unlike any other/ A beginning imprisoned by numbers and races' I am not sure where this goes. Failures leading you to a beginning? If you want to make that more understandable you could, however there is a good chance it means something to you, if so... Only my opinion. I really do like those lines I mentioned in the beginning, and I feel like your poem flowed. I hope this isn't how you feel everyday... if it is, hang on! Keep writing. If nothing else it will make you a stronger person and you will know how you will want your life to be different then those you observe.
