Through My Honesty

The walls are crashing
I can't see around them.
There's darkness everywhere
my soul is slipping away.
I can't find reason
through my honesty.

I've held those walls
I've walked around them.
I used to hide the darkness
peace was in my soul
everything had a reason
through my honesty.

Why am I standing alone
feeling sorry for myself?
I'm the one who tries to support
I'm the one who tries to shine brightness
I'm the one who writes of peacefulness
I'm the one now who doesn't want to face the truth
through my honesty.

Sometimes it's harder to convince ourselves of the truth than it is to convince others

Everything is for a reason, though we may not always see it at the time, Gloria.  This is abeautiful work - I can relate to these feelings well.

Excellent poem. Sometimes it's best to just accept and not seek the reason...

Thank You all, I wrote this one in about 5 minutes and it was a good release of anger, I felt such rage as I wrote it, but when I finished I was calmer. I actually went on to write a spiritual one after, so it moved me to another level that I needed to reach at the time. Thanks again, I'm glad it came out well for the time I did not put into it.
