This poem is about how i feel about my life. It is very personal to me because i was bullied my whole entire school years. Until i stopped caring and got into drugs, now im clean and sober from drugs for 4 years and im starting to heal by writing poems



Once upon a time
their was a guy
who loved to use drugs and get high

he wanted the pain to go away
so he pushed everyone aside

he ran his own palace 
from day to night
and didn't let anyone inside

he hid his treasure far beneath
that no one can seem to find

hes been hurting for far to long
and seems like he just wants to die

the pain he suffers is far to strong
it pushes him down to the ground

he cant get up
he's way to weak
to fight the inner ache

he lays on the ground while everyone laughs
and cant seem to get a break

he has a fuse
that everyone lights 
just to see him spark

he bites 
he growls
he spits
he yells
but cant seem to get away

he had enough one day
and stood up to his feet
he was no longer easy to defeat

he baked the pain into a cake
and shared it with his friends

he had no secrets he wanted to hide
so he let it all descend 

far away it went below
deeper than it ever has

he thought he was good
but that was a lie
he still felt the same inside

he tries to tell
but cant get it out
so he shows it in actions instead

he shows the pain to others
so see what he has to offer

trust me its never good
so don't ever take in personal
he hurts the ones he loves the most
because that's what happened to him
