Despair - Poem by Emma Kessler

Distraught
That's what I am
Why does the world
have to be like this?
Why can't things ever
work out for me?

Crying
That's what I'm doing
Crying out tears that drag out
my sadness, my pain, my confusion

Stop
That's what I want to do
Cease feeling the wrongs of the world
All weighing down on me
Until I feel I am crushed

How?
How can I forget the sadness?
How can I stop the pain?
How can I heal these scars
left on my heart?

Never
Never will I be able to rid my life
of all it's troubles
Never can I heal my heart
The wounds may heal
But the scars will remain

Escape
That's what I must do
But where?
Where is there a place safe from all the pain,
all the sadness, the confusion
I must go
I will never survive another day like this

Now
I must be rid of this
It's eating away at my insides
It's slowly causing me to fade
I'm growing weaker, and weaker
The sadness, the pain, the confusion

Despair
That's what this is
I am distraught and in despair
and I can never be rid of it
It is destroying me
Slowly, but surely
I am fading

    Despair is a goblin that catches you
    When you don't believe in yourself
    This life is not designed to be always blue
    Have eyes for other colors too...............
