When life gives you more than you bargained for.

Hush now,

Dry your tears,

Cast upon me,

These spiteful fears.


You drag your feet,

And talk in riddles,

I would love to help,

At least just a little.


Many times I've said I'm fine,

But deep inside,

Where nothing's fine,

I have lost my mind.


For many years,

I shed no tears,

But now I know,

That I should have.


People cry,

Not because they are weak,

But simply because,

They have been strong for too long.


The rain is cold,

And nights are long,

Life is too short,

To be alone.


For some,

It's as if the eight of the world is on them,

For others though,

Life seems care free.


I can tell you now,

The weight is real,

The pain is never ending,

And the feelings just linger.


So cast your pain,

All your fear,

And all your sadness,

Cast it into the abyss,

So no one can ever have it.


For the weight is heavy,

And the road is long,

I say stay strong,

And life will be better.


This is a poem for those out there that just have a hard time at life, and that just feel as if nothing ill ever get better. I m here to say that, that is not true, and that there will always be someone that will be willing to listen to what you have to say, and that will stay by you and pick you up when you fall. So I say to all who read this, stay string, and don;t give up hope, for everything happens for a reason. That reason might not be easily seen, but it is there, and t all takes part in a bigger part of our lives. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
