Please Let Me Out - Poem by Amy Louise Kerswell

Let me out of here
Out of this hell called life.
From the life of mine.
That never was.

It's a prison full of shame
And worthlessness

I'm trapped
I'm isolated
I'm alone

There's nothing left inside of me
But the terrifying emptiness

Where am I?
What am I doing?
Where am I going?
What's left for me to continue
In this painful world

Where am I going?
Is it meant to be this way

There is no love
There is no happiness
There is no compassion
Nor understanding
This is a cruel world -

I'm isolated
Trapped in hopelessness.
Lost in confusion
Helpless, worthless, useless
Let me out of this hell
Bound by the chains
Of rejection
Of shame
Of hurt
Of anger....
Left with nowhere to run
....or hide....
