Moral Decay

Moral Decay

A Poem by Alicia Hirshey

read authors note.


Happiness in nothing
Forever isn't true
I am not perfection
I will never be you

Want to lead the perfect life
Teach others not to stray
How can that be so
When my heart is already decayed

Crying won't solve anything
Bring more pain to itself
Setting here isn't easy
Hidden away on a shelf

Friendships long forgotten
Stupid summer days
I kick myself every time
My mind starts to stray

My life is a hole
Nothing but black
No matter how hard I fight
I will never have it back

Everything should be easy
I save people from themselves
How much longer can I
When I'm in my own personal hell?

"What happened to her sunshine?"
I hear people say
Where would yours be
If your world was cracking away?

I'm sorry I can't answer
The questions you held dear
I'm losing my composure
There is more to me than appears.

Life is full of disappointments
I'm sorry I was one
I am not perfect
I was never a happy one

Hold on to nothing
Everything you hold dear
Will soon fade away
Then why will you come here?

I can't save you
I can't even save myself
I'm not perfect
I'm sorry I couldn't be somebody else

I think its great. All of your poems are really good, I dont think you could actually write a bad poem. They always have so much meaning to them and are wonderful. They make us think and i can feel the emotion you put into them. great write

Everytime you say something isnt your best or is your worst turns out to infact be your best. This is a new favorite of mine. Very good, the lines went together perfectly and the entire poem flows so smoothly like it came straight from the heart without thinking. I love it. Every line has meaning to it and each has surrounding lines to back it up with, every line supports eachother. A perfectly written poem.
