a struggle i'm sure many, many people deal with..

if i break the skin

i'll feel no pain.


but without hurt,

is there gain?


i'll feel so numb

i'll feel so good

i'll feel so young

just like i should


no... i can't

i must do whats right

i must be strong

i must win the fight


yes i can

and it won't be hard

the answer is in my hands

i can heal my heart


but its not real

its not the solution

the joy i'll feel

is just an illusion


think, whats better?

comfort that's "fake"

or would i rather

grief and ache?


i should not listen

to my own lies

i should not give in

i'll be alright


but i've readied the needle

so its time to decide

good or evil

which one am i?

Rhyming poems! I'm so terrible at them! Haha anyway this one is really good.

"but i've readied the needle, so it's time to decide good or evil, which one am i?"

ah thanks!
i always try to give my writing some sort of a rhyme scheme.
but sometimes i feel myself not wanting to, because i think i would be able to express my meaning a lot more efficiently if i were ever just brave enough to use the right wording.
