honest hurting

sometimes i hurt so much,

physical pain from a mental enemy

sometimes i don't want to be alive,

tears trailing and flooding life


truth is,

once it's introduced itself

it never really leaves


truth is,

i'm trying my hardest

but i just wish i was actually okay


truth is,

i'm not okay

and it's bad right now

but i promise to keep trying

not for me

for you

This poem is about: 



Don' t lose that path...that's peace and love.
