Something Is Wrong - Poem by Leah Wells

Something must be wrong with me
with all this hurt inside,
always bursting with anger,
and never any pride.

Something must be wrong with me
if all I do is cry,
I can't stop this pain
all I want to do is die.

Something must be wrong with me
if my emotions run wild,
all this confusion does
is make me feel like a lost child.

Something must be wrong with me
with all these terrible things,
always there and never gone
depression is what it brings.

Something must be wrong with me
if I can't stop these thoughts,
all this pain does
is turn my stomach in knots.

Something is truly wrong with me
when I think there's only one way out,
'Let this pain end, '
is all my heart will shout.

    Your poem is very sad - I know the place you live - I too live it - only those that know can truly understand the anguish of just waking up another day. Hang in there - get some therapy - it is helping me. Good luck x (Report) Reply
