Angry cry

A Poem by Deron Alexis

Angry Cry

There it’s been

For a while now

Like a cancer in my chest

I’ve done my best

But I can’t fight it

I don’t know how.

 

And if good things

come to those that wait

Or to a good man

I don’t understand

Where’s my liberation?

What’s my fate?

To burn in anguish or hate?

No, good things come

to good men

men who sign the cross

and say their prayers at night

These ones get to judge you and accuse you of their slight.

 

For as long as my sorrow grew,

As long as my shadows consumed me,

I’ve been waiting for some good

To come along console me.

But here we are again

One the faker ,another accuser

We’ll make a choice tonight.

Do I turn this weapon

upon myself,

or do I cry away the suicide?

do I claw my way out

dragging on with someone’s stride

selfishly spitting out the demons

in their face? or…

I could die alone

Am I so in vain?

So pointless and disdained

Selfish and in pain.

 

“You could be happy.”

The words of someone fake

Revelling in their superiority

Because I’m so melodramatic

And their world is so safe.

thanks allot i appreciate the read and review
I think we all have these moments. All humans are somewhat selfish, regardless of the superiority we tend to fake. I can relate to this so much, as I consider myself a true realist. Good deeds do not necessarily man good things will happen. We have to do what we feel makes us content and not the world. A safe world can be a boring world, so the melodramatic actually live more. Loved this piece for its rawness and truth. The red letters were a cool effect too.

Your welcome I hope so
So much angst and frustration jumping out from every one of your words, you left blood and guts behind on your page Deron, a sadly emotive read with attitude...well said.
