Alone Poem by Teens

This poem is about how I feel about the things in my life right now. I wrote this poem because I have been dealing with a lot. Pain of rape and neglect, sorrow and hurt, and I feel there's no one to help me. I try to make things better, but nobody seems to have time, or they just don't understand.

Such a touching poem. I love the diction used. It really creates an atmosphere that rhymes well with the subject matter.

Pain, Heartache, And Loneliness

©

Published: June 2014

Slowly I feel myself breaking.
My knees feel weak; it seems I'm shaking.
My arms are tired and my legs feel numb.
My mind in a haywire and I want to run.

Stress is building, tears still fall.
My lonely nights I lay
Staring at these blank walls.

Hopeless sleep with no means to an end
Keeping me from the monsters within.
Tragic flares and dreams down the drain.
The nightmares I have bring me the most pain.

Wishing for the truth, but only finding lies.
The secrets I try to keep behind
My dull brown eyes.

My tears won't stop, I can't keep fighting.
I'm losing all hope of ever finding.
I don't know who I am; with everything going on,
I've lost myself in this midst of a crowd.

My heart can't take this never ending pain,
With every word they say I feel like they drain.
My dying, beating heart that has nothing to gain.

The stares I receive like I shame them so bad,
But the truth is that I only wanted to try,
Try and fight for what I had.

Now here I am, with this lonely broken soul,
Awaiting my faith in this pitch black hole.

This was a very touching poem for me. I have been struggling my whole life with depression, anxiety and feelings of never being good enough. I always feel alone or like I'm not worthy of anybody's time but I have many people tell me otherwise. Even though many people say they want to help and try their best only certain people really understand what I'm going through and I feel that reading this poem has touched me because I know what it feels like to be alone and trapped in a dark hole that we feel may never end. You are never alone. God is always with you. :) Keep your chin up storms can't last forever. Stay strong!
