Standing On The Edge - Poem by Bishoy Sargius

Somewhere in the world there is a man standing at the edge you know,
And deep inside he's lost everything and he just wished he could go,
And the scary part is that it's the people's fault that he feels this fear,
But in reality there was no one there to have his heart sewed,

The funny part was that people act like they were there,
You see this is a soldier whose holding back his own tears,
He's been taking the beating of the world for his little girl's sake,
And surely you can see his whole world rip and tear,

Not long ago he was baking his girl a cake,
But not too long ago his little girl didn't wake,
You know he was holding her as he began to weep,
It's kinda funny how this whole world never gives but takes,

But you see the world had him bury six feet deep,
his nightmare kept repeating with a promise he couldn't keep,
So now to end it all and to see her again it takes one leap,
Just one leap.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This was a class assignment that we were given 20 minutes on to write after reading one of Robert Frost's poem, Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening. I took inspiration from it by writing this with the same rhyme scheme as Mr.Frost and using his structure. I even used words at the end of each stanza to rhyme with the corresponding words on the end of Mr.Frost's poem as a challenge for myself. Feedback would be much appreciated of any kind and thank you for giving me your time by reading this poem.
