The Unheard Cry For Help - Poem by Holly Robinson

I hate what I've become
I don't know how I ended up here
Laughter is a sound foreign to my ears
The mirror's reflection is now unrecognizable
The light of each new day is no longer welcomed

I tried so hard to fit in
but don't know who I am any more.
I walked down this lonely path so long
I don't know my way back.
I long to remember joy
but struggle in vain against the sadness I've created.
The hope I once felt for the future
has been replaced with so many regrets from my past.
Each day I pray I will find the strength to get back
but fear my heart is permanently weakened.

Please, somebody help me out of the terrible place I've been so long.
Someone light the way so I can find the path out.
I can't do it on my own, my soul has slowly faded and I'm weak.
Someone save me from this quiet agony, please...
Save me from myself.
