Sorry I Was Born - Poem by Ciera Ivey

What's the use of living life
When it's not worth living?
I just don't see the point
My heart is tired of giving.
Everyone says cheer up,
But why should I cheer?
I have no reason to laugh anymore.
The only emotions I show are anger and tears.
With memories that linger
Won't seem to go away.
Why can't I be happier?
Today's a brand new day.
The thoughts are coming back,
The ones that bring the pain.
I thought everything was all my fault.
Now I know they are to blame.
I'm sorry for this,
What I'm going to do.
And this life doesn't matter to me anymore
Because it didn't matter to you.

    wow this is exactly how i feel constantly
    its amazing how you interpret such complex emotions into this poem

    i find it hard to talk about how i feel because it doesn't make sense I'm full of questions that i don't even know how to ask, thats why i love writing its so free it doesn't have to make perfect sense, it lets you put your thoughts into a form you understand.
    i find it helps me, i hope it helps you too
    keep writing
