Poem about Life Struggles

Poem About The Confusion Of Chasing Or Sacrificing Dreams

I am a 21-year-old Civil Engineer from India. I am usually a happy writer, writing poems about nature and puppies. But a year ago, I lost my father to cancer and my whole life took a turn. I am no longer the same bubbly girl I used to be. I am not that comfortable talking about him to others. So to not fall in depression, I write my feelings down through poems. I have updated a few of them on my Facebook profile, too. But this one I wrote last night and have not shown to anyone.

The Strings

Published: September 2015

The knot is strong,
The strings are tight.
It won't break loose,
No matter how much I fight.

The grip is fierce,
Disguised in every tear.
I wish to overcome
This emptiness of fear.

I know once on my own,
I might not survive.
But there is a mere chance
For me to be alive.

The cost of losing the bond
Could be my biggest mistake.
But I am done living
A life I can no longer fake.

I was really touched by the poem mam. My good friend's father also died 2 months ago, and I am really trying to do whatever I can. Giving them time, my love and support. But I don't know how to help them to recover again and get involved in this life again. I know it is not easy but its not impossible. I can feel the pain but I can't feel how he is feeling. I don't want them to stay like that because later it will result into the worse. I know you will understand my problem.
I also love to write poems but I will be really grateful to you if you really tell me the poem or words that can heal and give them a new way. Because I really want to write something but not finding any words to write. wordless
