Hurting 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 by Family Friend Poems June 2014 with permission of the Author.

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!
