ROCK BOTTOM

Life

Life has no mercy

Life takes and never replaces

Life will stab you until you die and continue to keep stabbing just to prove

that you are worthless without LIFE

MY LIFE

Depression hits

Confessed to my family

They ignored it and I hold everything in

Friend cuts herself

Now she does drugs I wasn't able to save her

My first love crumbled my heart

He cheated on me with his friend

Good guy of 4 years comes into my life and I push him away

Star student got a full ride to a college

Family of 7

They disapprove

No support my senior year was a nightmare

Lost my best friend to a dead beat boyfriend

Lived in a gated community until the owner wanted to sale it

Mom been in 4 wrecks this year

Didn't find a house in time so my 4 younger brother and parents

Had to stay with my Grandma

Landlord took our deposit

I had to be separated from my family to stay with one of my friends

Worked day and night just to num my pain

Saved for college and help my parents with the bills

Where is GOD for good people ?

When will we finally RISE

Get to college from having straight A's to failing everything

Trying to smile to stop from crying and losing my mind

Mom pregnant again

4 hours away from home

My Dad's car get repossessed

Phones off

Mom goes off on me and I break

Took the wind out of my lungs

Met a guy liked him a lot

Until life broke him within seconds

This happened within a week

Loses Debit card in uber ,Lost his Job ,Dad kicks him out ,Got in a physical fight with his dad

Money I gave him get stolen plus his ID ,Dad took all his money out his account

When we finally got things back on track got him a place and ID

Even a job in the process

But now he has to leave the place he was staying and now he is stuck

Friends turn they back on me trying to jump me

Wanting to start drama

Tried to overdose but life makes the final say

How much more can I take .I give ,I pray and yet I have nothing ...

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
