Why?

Why?

A Poem by basic writer
"

just a poem

"


All I have inside of me 
I need to set that free
all the strength inside 
is what I commonly hide 
Why? because I want to reside 
all the tears I have cried 
I've been using up all my yesterdays 
and well it is so painful this way,
Why? I have no life ahead 
it is full of dread 
so I like to look back at what I had 
why? because it didn't treat me this bad.

I hope you find a new direction. This is a sad poem to think you are reflecting so much on the past instead of living in the now and moving into the future. It takes courage to get yourself out of that. I really wish you well. An honest write. Good luck.

We all have questions we must ask ourselves. Sometimes a career change is the right thing to do. It can be a risk, but we all have to take some risks at some time or other. I wish you well, whatever direction you decide to take.

thank you so much for your input on this
Using up yesterdays is painful, but best not to use up tomorrows...that is when the real trouble engages.

I agree dear poet.
"All I have inside of me
I need to set that free
all the strength inside
is what I commonly hide "
Come a time, we must walk away from yesterday and live for today. I liked the honest tone of the words. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

thank you so much Kaye
don't know how old you are BW, but I can identify with the absence of purpose your work seems to be hinting at. Career changes are tough. Been there. Won't bore you with long story, just this: at 35 I left an extremely lucrative career due to burnout and disillusionment at choices I was being made to make. 25 yrs later I as dead certain now, as I was then, that I made the right choice. Life is too short, and sense of self too important to dead end yourself in a place you don't want to be. Money, despite what we are told, is not the path to happiness. When you find happiness in doing something you love and want to do, life has a way of providing enough of the things needed to live life to the fullest.
Don't be afraid of change, embrace it and grow with whatever the change brings to you.

Good luck in your decision.

Ps the poem is a good poem, honest and genuine, which is all a poem should be. All the rest, is just us poets preening for the other peacocks strutting their feathers alongside us in the park
