Scream - Poem by Riley Mask

Do you ever feel like breaking down?
Do you ever feel out of place?
When all you want to do is scream

Do your mom and dad always act despicable to each other?
You want it to stop but it makes your head throb

You want to scream but it hurts so badly you don’t know what to do
Your thoughts are screaming inside your head
All you know what to do is talk to God

He is the only one that can get rid of this pain
This pain that eats you up inside
So just scream

God can you help now I’m pulling all my hairs out
My brain is shutting down…down…down

It’s shutting down…down…down
So just scream

    Edvard Munch did it without computer graphics. Some gifted ones can say it quite effectively without resorting to polysyllabics.... A starkly painful topic expressed so very well. (Report) Reply
