Why me?...

Why me?...

A Poem by Christopher Paul

“Wait, please don’t”, he cried

“Please, don’t do this”, he watched as his soul died

“Why, why me?” he felt the tears in his eyes

“Please, I can’t take it”, his heartbeat was amplified

“Please, make it stop”, his reality and nightmare collide

“I don’t want to live in pain”, his reasons were justified

Why can’t someone just stand by my side?

If this pain is all I get what can’t I suicide?

Why am I forced to live because living is glorified?

All I feel is hate and it’s a landslide

I smile and laugh on the outside

But I’m dead and hallow on the inside

Yes, for other support and strength I provide

But there is no one for me, no arms where I can hide

Is it because I’m so kind?

The purity of the soul does affect your mind

It’s like you turn a bit blind

You cannot trust what you feel, everything is intertwined

You think with your heart and leave your guard behind

And like this, you sign your name on the dotted line

You once again give your heart and soul to the unkind

This is your fate, your life, your crime

To suffer by your own hands until the day you die
