Rate this poem

Pain.. It is something I do not take lightly.
It breaks and tears, and teases and touches,
Not delicate but forceful and aggressive.
It tears at me, always laughing at me.
Mocking my cries while I slowly start breaking.
Pain.. You are better than nothing
I’d rather have you than feel numb

Institutionalised and working nine to five.
No time- we live by day by day stresses,
Poverty and governmental blunders still rife.

With latest youth schemes that are just a fad.
The normal are struggling to get by,
The rich bankers, getting richer, still bitter and sad.

A back to front robin hood, rich are stealing from the poor.
You have bills coming out your ears and can barely cope,
But why should that stop the greedy from wanting more.

Old ladies getting mugged and hurt.
Bombings, murders, rapists and terror attacks,
Seems like this country has gone berserk.

A culture of drinking , miserable without any cash,
And of i’ll mock you first before you mock me,
Whilst people waste time complaining about trash.

Race hate and race crime, are things that exist still today,
But they’re still alive and the good are dying.
Makes you think of things in a less positive way.

Drug addiction takes its hold where frustration manifests.
Seems like the forgotten live on council estates,
But social academics think they know the best.

Last time they were there was driving through as a shortcut.
Students in debt, leaving university only to get nowhere,
The major lack of jobs to apply for, leaving young people in a rut.

Equality forms checked by some upper class rich at a desk in HR,
we run our lives around forms and papers everyday.
Like a job’s lottery, they tell us we are lucky to be where we are.

Wars, hating, cover ups, propaganda like its World war two.
Walk down the street and look the other way to the homeless guy that sits in the same place everyday,
They look out for themselves, for number one forget about you.

Life’s constraint, but the constraint we make them,
These times we’re born in but make a change: don’t just take.
And live your life to the fullest because you cannot go back again.
And stop all the worrying, even if you make mistakes.

You told me on a Sunday that It wasn’t going to work,
I cried the whole entire day because it was supposed to hurt,
I looked around & all I see was pictures of you & me,
I go ahead & looked at them bringing back memories,
I looked at you & tears started dropping down my face
where no one will catch them, where no one knows Im suffering,
I just wanted to die in that moment,
I wish I wasn’t alive & that I didn’t even exist,
I just wanted to be far far away from here,
where no one could hear me cry, where no one could see me suffer,
where no one will feel this pain that is killing me inside,
where no one was near, where I could be alone
& maybe just maybe this horrible feeling will go away,
because I won’t handle it if it stays.
I go outside for the 1st time again it’s raining so hard,
so I stand in the rain, wishing maybe this will go away,
all I could hear now is every drop that falls from the sky.
I could hear someone’s voice saying
“you don’t need to suffer anymore because Im here now,
take my hand and I will take you to a better place,
where no one gets hurt, where tears don’t exist,
& where happiness always stays
because sadness had gone away,
so take my hand today, & you’ll be fine
because you’re with me.”

I wanted to be that little girl

Sitting in my pad with nothing to do,
Thinking of the heart ache and pain I put you through.
I wanted to be that little girl who made you proud,
But sadly things have happened in my life,
that simply make me wanna scream out loud.
All the pain and anger, I cannot bare,
when all I want is someone to understand and be there.
I sometimes wonder if this life Im leading is ever going to end,
but then again all I can think of is seeking my revenge.
I don’t blame you for any of this,
as you’ve stood by me, like I could only wish.
so with your help and care,
I can leave things in the past, as they belong there.
so I can be happy and be free………… not me

My tears ….. A river.
There’s nothing I want more
than lying with you without having doubts…..
Closing our eyes without having to watch out
because you know you have me, and I have you
Have to let it go…………..
How many times I cried….
How many times I screamed your name out loud
wishing you just stepped out the room
that you are next door.
How many times my heart bumps in my chest
just by hearing your name
You think I want to live without you??
No Idiot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!? I don’t…..
You are like the water I need to live.
Just trying to be strong
because I want you to find me alive
when you come home……
