Up at night I sit an' wonder
I wonder 'bout th' morrow
What it'll bring o' sadness an' sorrow
Tired an' weak I slowly fade into th' night, still I ponder

Within my dreams I seek th' answers
On questions th' day could not give
An' what th' day could not provide
I'll get from darkness which in I hide

I hope one day that what I've lost
I'll find again an' keep forever
'Cause as I've grown, carelessly I've thrown
Away th' gifts I was given a child
Gifts o' life which cannot be bought
Which I for oh so long now have sought

Aah you say that you know me
But please admit you must be wrong
'Cause have can you when even I don't know myself

Curled up with my head on my knees
Desolate an' alone in a corner o' a room
It feels like I'm sittin' on th' edge o' th' world
An' all o' them, every single one seems ready
Just waitin' t' shove me off th' cliff
Fallin' down th' endless hole again
But held by an angel I arise t' a new day
Stronger than ever, still weaker than most
I try t' keep goin', but you know it's not easy
Same as I know I'm not alone
We're in this together an' we'll make it together
      I hope

this is EXCELLENT!!!
you have written this so exceptionally well.
the emotions in it are so deep and well expressed...this is my fav of yours.
very nice work here!!
take care, jm

 Well the sun sets gently on your shoulders
And it makes me want to touch you there.
And the light in your eyes makes me feel
Like there's something much better out there
Something kind...
And I know someday I might be looking around
Trying to find some purpose
Well purpose it can't be that hard to find
As long as I've got the wind...
The wind and your love to carry me.

'Tis not we who push you my sweet, but bar your way, from the endless hole.
We circle this very abyssal portal.
deep regards.

 I howl a mornful song, that echos within my chambered heart, for all to read? nay for all to feel.

This is EXCELLENT! we must never forget to open our eyes and see those around us that are willing to travel this dark road with us and even if their is no one around, i feel that we are stronger than most...and by being here posting our souls to the world showing them that despite everything..we are still HERE, proves me right.  

take care *HUG*

I agree with everyone...this poem is EXCELLENT!!! No other words to describe it..truly magnificant.

I asked God how much he loved me...
He said this much...
And streched out his arms and Died.
