I'm sick of the way the world's been treating me
All the love lost, pain and misery
I've gotta find a way to get back on my feet again
I keep looking ahead but i see no light
And its getting really hard to continue this fight
If something doesnt happen soon its gonna be the end

Just when things are looking good is when they start to go bad
And all the worst times that I've ever had
They all come crashing down on me
Now if the blade of my knife or the pills in my hand
Could take me away to the afterland
Then maybe I could finally be set free


But I dont wanna close my eyes
Can't seem to get it outta my head
Don't wanna close my eyes
Do I really want to be dead
I dont wanna close my eyes
And turn all my days to night
Close my eyes
And say goodbye to the rest of my life


Theres gotta be something in that light
Just outta my grasp, just outta my sight
If only I could bring it closer to me
Just some kind of hint some kind of sign
To make me slow down and take a little more time
Then maybe I could see there's a reason for me


Cause I dont wanna close my eyes
Cant seem to get it outta my head
I dont wanna close my eyes
Do I really want to be dead
I dont wanna close my eyes
And turn all my days to night
Close my eyes
And say goodbye to the rest of my life


How strong are you?

this was a good piece, but.......and I might be wrong.........I don't think this is the place for posting poetry.

are you actually feeling this way? i've felt this way for over a year now. i've been diagnosed with clinical depression, and i'm taking medicine for it, but nothing seems to work. all i can say is keep looking up, and maybe (hopefully) life will someday get better. best of luck.

Clinically depressed? Watch a lot of comedies. Read humor. Maybe that will help. It also helps to learn to laugh at yourself.

I thought the poem was okay. For some reason it seemed more like a song than a poem, don't know why. But it got the point across.
