Life sucks, with sorrow and strife,
And we struggle to survive.
But then life fucks, with fortune and fame,
And we bask in its brilliant flame.
Laughter and love, luck and lust,
Life’s fickleness can be unjust.
Yet we persevere, with passion and pride,
Through the highs and lows of life’s wild ride.
Lingering losses and lessons learned,
Life’s bittersweet blessings are earned.
So let’s live fully, and never give up,
For life sucks and then life fucks.
Lost in the dark, I wander alone,
With no guide to lead me home,
My heart beats fast, my mind’s a mess,
I fear the worst, I must confess.
The shadows dance and play their game,
As I struggle to find my way again,
My eyes strain hard to see some light,
But all around is endless night.
Silly Sally stepped on the street,
Suddenly she stumbled with her feet,
Slipping and sliding on the slippery slope,
Struggling to stand up and cope.
She summoned her strength and sought support,
To steady herself and stay afloat,
With each stride she gained success,
And learned to avoid the slippery mess.
The two sides of me, forever at war,
A split personality, a struggle I abhor,
Trying to maintain a facade, but what for?
When my identity crisis leaves me wanting more.
“It’s not you, It’s me,” I say with a sigh,
As I try to explain my inner turmoil, my lie,
A struggle that leaves me feeling so shy,
My dual personality, forever on standby.
One side is strong, the other is weak,
One is hopeful, the other is bleak,
A split that leaves me feeling so meek,
My identity crisis, forever unique.
The two sides of me, a battle so fierce,
A split personality, a struggle so pierce,
Trying to maintain my facade, but at what expense?
When my identity crisis leaves me feeling so dense.
Drowning in Sadness
I’m sinking in a sea of tears,
Engulfed by waves of pain.
I try to swim, but all my fears
Drag me down once again.
I struggle to keep my head above,
But the weight is just too much.
The world around me fades to love,
And all I feel is the crush.
I’m drowning in this ocean blue,
With no sign of the shore.
I pray for strength to make it through,
Just one breath, nothing more.
The good fight is never easy,
But it’s necessary to make things breezy.
We must stand up for what is right,
And keep pushing through with all our might.
We may stumble, we may fall,
But the fight is worth it all.
For every victory is hard-won,
And in the end, justice shall be done.
Some souls suffer silently,
Suppressing screams, stifling sighs,
Struggling to survive, seeking solace,
Sorrow seeping through their souls.
Silent screams, suppressed sobs,
Suffering in shadows, seeking support,
Solemn souls, struggling silently.
I get mixed signals,
From the world around me,
A confusing jumble of signs,
That I struggle to see.
One moment it’s smiles and sunshine,
The next it’s storm clouds and rain,
I’m never quite sure where I stand,
Or what I should do in this game.
Sometimes it feels like a puzzle,
And I’m missing a crucial piece,
Other times it’s a maze,
And I’m trapped with no release.
But in the midst of it all,
There’s a glimmer of hope and light,
For I know that I’m not alone,
And I’ll make it through this fight.
Broken girl, shattered soul,
Lost in a world she can’t control.
Her heart is heavy, burdened with pain,
And she wonders if she’ll ever feel whole again.
She’s been hurt, she’s been betrayed,
Her spirit bruised, her trust decayed.
She tries to hide behind a smile,
But her eyes reveal the pain all the while.
She’s a warrior, fighting every day,
Battling demons that won’t go away.
But sometimes the battles take their toll,
And she feels like she’s losing control.
Broken girl, don’t give up hope,
You’re stronger than you think, you can cope.
Take a deep breath, find your inner peace,
And let your heart and soul release.
The world may be cruel, but you are strong,
And with each day, you’ll inch along.
You’ll find your way, you’ll heal your heart,
And one day, you’ll be whole again, a brand new start.acceptance, battles, betrayed, brand new start, bravery, Broken girl, bruised, burdened, control, cope, courage, cruel, decayed, Deep breath, demons, determination, endurance, eyes, Fighting, grit, growth, heal, heart, heavy, hide, hope, hurt, Inch, Inner Peace, losing control, lost, Overcome, pain, perseverance, Release, Resilience, Reveal, shattered, shattered soul, smile, spirit, strong, Stronger, struggle, transformation, Triumph, trust, vulnerability, warrior, Whole, world
Life was never fair
I was born in a poor and broken family
I never had a chance to go to school or play
I had to work hard every day to survive
I never knew what happiness or love was
I saw the rich and the powerful enjoy their lives
I saw them have everything they wanted and more
I saw them laugh and smile and have fun
I never understood why they had it all and I had nothing
I tried to change my fate and make something of myself
But I faced many obstacles and challenges along the way
I was discriminated, exploited, and betrayed by many
I never got the recognition or reward I deserved
I grew old and bitter and full of regrets
I had no friends or family to care for me
I had no dreams or hopes or goals to pursue
I never felt that life was fair or just
The world is full of pain and sorrow
The news is full of war and terror
The people are full of hate and fear
The leaders are full of lies and greed
The earth is full of scars and wounds
The sky is full of smoke and smog
The water is full of trash and toxins
The air is full of dust and germs
The life is full of stress and struggle
The work is full of pressure and boredom
The love is full of betrayal and heartbreak
The joy is full of fleeting and fake
This is the nauseating reality we face
This is the bitter truth we taste
This is the dismal fate we embrace
This is the hopeless state we waste

I just tried to frame a poem
What’s something most people don’t understand?
The complexity of mental illness, a struggle so grand.
Silent suffering, a hidden pain,
Stigma and shame, a loss of gain.
Symptoms and struggles, a tangled web,
Support and understanding, a need to be fed.
Strength and resilience, a daily fight,
Solutions and treatments, a glimmer of light.
What’s something most people don’t understand?
The complexity of mental illness, a journey so grand.
I feel a sudden dizziness
As I look down from the edge
The world is spinning in my eyes
And I lose my sense of balance
I feel a surge of fear
As I realize I might fall
The ground is far below me
And I hear a distant call
I feel a grip of panic
As I try to hold on tight
The wind is pushing me away
And I struggle with all my might
I feel a touch of calmness
As I accept my fate
The sky is clear above me
And I embrace the vertigo’s weight
You struggle every day,
To find your way and make your stay,
In this world of chaos and fray,
You face the challenges come what may.
But in every challenge, there’s an opportunity,
To grow and learn, to rise and be,
Stronger than ever, wiser, and free,
To live the life you’re meant to lead.
So don’t lose hope, my dear,
For there’s always a way to steer,
Through the darkest of nights and the roughest of seas,
Towards a brighter future filled with endless possibilities.
In the beginning, there was but one,
A void of blackness, without the sun,
Until a spark, a flicker of light,
Pushed back the dark and ended the night.
But even still, the darkness remains,
A force that forever will maintain,
Its grasp on all that the light gives birth,
A balance maintained on the edge of earth.
So too in life, we find this fight,
Between the shadows and the light,
A battle waged within our souls,
As we strive towards our ultimate goals.
For light brings hope and joy and peace,
While darkness offers no release,
A constant struggle, a tug of war,
Between the light we seek and the dark we abhor.
Yet in this dance of light and dark,
We find the beauty, the vital spark,
For without the darkness, the light would fade,
And with it, all the beauty it made.
So let us embrace both light and dark,
And find the balance that leaves a mark,
Of love and beauty, joy and pain,
A life fully lived, in sunshine and rain.
The Poor Man’s Fate
The poor man’s fate, a life of struggle and strife,
A world of hardship, that’s hard to reconcile,
The dreams, they’re many, but the means are few,
A world of limitations, that’s hard to undo.
The hunger, it gnaws, with a relentless pain,
A world of deprivation, that’s hard to sustain,
The hope, it flickers, with a dimming light,
A world of desperation, that’s hard to fight.
But even in the darkness, there’s a glimmer of light,
A reminder of hope, that’s forever in sight.
No Hints or Signs
No hints or signs to guide my way,
Just darkness all around,
I stumble blindly through the night,
With no hope to be found.
The path ahead is shrouded,
In a veil of shadows deep,
And every step is treacherous,
With dangers I can’t see.
I long for just a glimmer,
Of light to show the way,
But all is silent, still, and dark,
As I struggle through the fray.
And yet, somehow, I keep going,
With a strength I didn’t know I had,
For even in the darkest night,
There’s a glimmer of hope to be had.
So I press on with courage,
And a faith that won’t be quenched,
For I know that in the end,
My journey will be well-refinched.
Beneath the surface of my skin,
There lies a darkness deep within,
It creeps and crawls and never sleeps,
And in my heart it dwells and keeps.
I try to hide it every day,
But it always seems to find its way,
A shadow cast upon my soul,
That leaves me feeling far from whole.
I lie awake at midnight, oh how peaceful,
Insomniac and irritated, like a burden so stressful.
Incessantly tossing and turning, with no end in sight,
Inevitably exhausted, with each passing night.
Intrusive thoughts and ideas, they won’t let go,
Incapacitating and insidious, like a never-ending flow.
Internalizing and isolating, I’m lost in my mind,
Intensely overwhelmed, like a never-ending bind.
Insecure and indecisive, I question my fate,
Intrinsically flawed, like a broken crate.
Inept and insincere, I lie to myself,
Incessantly struggling, like a book on a shelf.
Contort myself in a cage of thoughts,
Twisted limbs and tangled knots.
Trapped in a cycle of self-doubt,
Held captive by fears and clouds of drought.
Bend and stretch, strain and ache,
A desperate effort for freedom’s sake.
But the harder I struggle, the tighter I’m bound,
A prisoner of my own creation, forever unbound.
Faith, a beacon shining bright,
Guiding us through darkest night,
Doubt, a shadow lurking near,
Whispering falsehoods in our ear.
Faith, a force that can move mountains,
Doubt, a weight that knows no bounds,
In this struggle, we must choose,
To have faith, or to let doubt rule.
Tussle of Heart and the Mind
The tussle of heart and the mind, a battle within,
A struggle between reason and emotion, a constant din.
The heart seeks love, passion, and desire,
While the mind looks for logic, facts, and fire.
The heart wants to follow its dreams and take risks,
While the mind holds back, hesitant, and brisk.
The heart yearns to live life to the fullest,
While the mind cautions, be careful, and thoughtful.
The heart feels deeply, with every beat,
While the mind analyzes, dissects, and treats.
The heart seeks connection, intimacy, and trust,
While the mind questions, probes, and adjusts.
In the end, the tussle continues, a never-ending fight,
But it’s the balance of heart and mind that makes things right.
For when the two work together, in harmony and grace,
That’s when we find our purpose, our passion, and our place.
I’m so broken, shattered inside,
Pieces of my heart I cannot hide,
I try to mend but the cracks remain,
Pain and sorrow are my constant refrain.
Each day a struggle to get by,
With tears in my eyes and a heavy sigh,
But I hold on, though it’s hard to cope,
For someday I’ll find a way to hope.
Freedom is a bird that soars on high,
Its wings unfurled against the sky,
A heart that beats with fierce desire,
To soar above and never tire.
Captivity is a cage that binds,
A prison where the heart unwinds,
A soul that longs to spread its wings,
And fly away on wild, free flings.
Freedom and captivity, two states of mind,
One a blessing, the other unkind.
Insecurity’s web is tangled and deep
A maze of doubts that we cannot keep
It traps our minds and clouds our thoughts
Filling our hearts with fear and knots
We struggle to break free from its hold
To find our way to confidence bold
But the web persists, a constant foe
Insecurity’s grip, a difficult blow
A Painful Life
A painful life, a heavy load to bear
Days filled with sorrow, nights filled with despair
A heart that’s broken, a soul that’s torn
A life that’s shattered, a spirit forlorn
The weight of the world, upon weary shoulders
A constant struggle, as each day grows colder
The pain within, a never-ending ache
A life of sorrow, that’s hard to shake
But through the tears, a glimmer of hope
A chance for healing, a way to cope
Strength from within, to endure the pain
And rise above, to face life again
For though the road is long, and the journey hard
The human spirit, can never be barred
From finding a way, to rise above the strife
And find peace and solace, in this painful life.
The darkness looms, a heavy weight,
That drags me down with every step,
Its tendrils wrap around my soul,
And fill my heart with deep regret.
It whispers lies, it feeds my fears,
It tells me that I’m all alone,
That nothing matters, nothing’s real,
That hope is but an empty throne.
The weight of darkness bears me down,
And makes it hard to see the light,
The world around me fades to black,
And hope is lost in endless night.
But still I fight, I strive to break,
The chains that bind me to this pain,
I search for light amid the dark,
And hope that I’ll be whole again.
For though the weight of darkness seems,
Too heavy for my soul to bear,
I know that with each step I take,
I’m one step closer to fresh air.
A flicker of hope, a ray of light
Can bring us from the depths of night
But when despair takes hold of our soul
We struggle to maintain control
Hope and despair, they both abide
In hearts that ache and minds that hide
But through it all, we must believe
That hope will triumph and despair will leave
The pain consumes, it never fades
My mind is trapped in this darkened haze
I can’t escape this endless cycle
My thoughts consumed by this bitter bile
The pain is all I know, all I feel
It’s become a part of me that’s all too real
I’m lost in the grip of this obsession
Trapped in this cycle without any confession
Within my mind, a battle rages on,
A war of thoughts, a struggle prolonged,
Doubt and fear, they hold me back,
While hope and faith, I try to track.
My heart is torn, my soul is weary,
In this endless struggle, I feel so dreary,
But I won’t give up, I’ll fight with might,
Till the darkness fades and the future’s bright.
The tempest within, a stormy sea,
Where waves of emotion run wild and free,
A tumultuous journey through heart and mind,
Where thoughts and feelings intertwine.
It’s a battle of wills, a struggle to cope,
As the tempest rages and refuses to elope,
But with time and patience, the storm shall pass,
And bring with it a calm that will last.
Fleeing from troubles that never seem to end,
Escaping from the darkness that consumes me,
Running away from the pain that won’t bend,
Hoping to find a place where I can be free.
The world rushes by as I race to escape,
Heart pounding, breath heaving, muscles ache,
I push myself harder, no time to take a break,
Fighting to leave my past and its mistakes.
Through struggles and strife we must go,
Persevering with each ebb and flow,
For victory comes not to the weak,
But those who strive and never meek.
And when at last we reach the end,
We’ll see the strength that we did lend,
To conquer all that came our way.
Evil around, tick tock goes the clock,
A world of darkness, a never-ending knock,
With every moment, a battle to fight,
And every breath, a struggle for light.
But amidst the chaos, a glimmer of hope,
A chance to rise above, a way to cope.
Sleepless nights, the mind’s in turmoil,
Thoughts and worries begin to boil,
Restless hours, the clock ticks on,
The night is long, the mind is gone.
Toss and turn, the bed becomes a foe,
And sleep, the elusive state, just won’t show.
From tragedy to triumph, the journey is long Pain and struggle, the road is never wrong Broken pieces, shattered dreams and tears Moments of despair, battling all your fears
But through the darkness, there’s always light A glimmer of hope, shining so bright With each step forward, a new strength is born And the triumph of the spirit, will soon adorn
For in the end, the journey is worthwhile The strength gained through tragedy, brings a genuine smile A lesson learned, a story to tell From tragedy to triumph, life will always excel.
From tragedy to triumph, the journey is long, It’s a battle of heart and mind, to stay strong. But the darkest of nights, precede the brightest of days, And through the struggles and pain, we find new ways.
We pick up the pieces, and start anew, Holding on to hope, and seeing it through. We transform the tragedy, into a story of triumph, And emerge from the darkness, with a sense of aplomb.
For every setback, brings a chance to grow, And with each step forward, the strength within us glows. The road to triumph may be tough and steep, But with perseverance and faith, we can reach its peak.
So let the tragedy be a stepping stone, To a life of victory and a future unknown.
My feet in chains, they weigh me down
With every step, I wear a frown
My heart aches, my soul is sore
For freedom, I yearn for more
These chains of iron, they bind my feet
And steal my will, my hopes and dreams
I feel their weight with every breath
And struggle on, with endless quest
The days go by, and time stands still
As I wander through this world, so still
My feet in chains, a constant pain
And yet, I know, they’ll break one day
For though my body may be bound
My spirit soars, unbridled, unbound
And in my heart, I hold the key
To break these chains and set me free
So though my feet may ache and bleed
And though my heart may softly plead
I know that someday, I will find
The strength to leave these chains behind
And in that moment, when I’m free
My soul will soar, my heart will sing
For I’ll have triumphed, against the odds
With my feet in chains, and yet unbound.
Surrounded by darkness and
Infested with demons deep within
Praying for survival of my soul
Lost in my direction where do I begin
Brainwashed with worthlessness
Left with a heart that turned to stone
In humanity a lost trust and at an early
Age forced to survive on my own
Constantly struggling with the echoes
From my past consumed with self doubt
I feared my life would be lived in my
Eternal hell with no way out
But unrealized at the time, there were
Angels assigned to watch over me
And only later in my life was it revealed
My eyes were opened so that I could see
I realized nothing was random or by chance
Yet indeed life was from creation
And I knew that I had to release my Pride
And all of my reasons for my vexation
Finding faith from the unknown
And unseen unto myself I died
Born again,sins washed away
Thus began the quest from the inside
Skeletons in the closet
Poison in the cupboard
Strangers in the hallway
Life without a lover
Knives in the kitchen
Needles in the drawer
Pills in the dresser
A knock on the door
I begged from him no more
“Hello, my name is Death,
And you’re the one I’ve come for.”
