Stay Strong.

Stay Strong.

A Poem by JustALotusFlower

I heard about what happened.

I can't beleive it.

How could one of the strongest people I know,

be reduced to nothing, or be hit with that much pain?

I broke down.

Eric told me to stay strong.


I realize, nothing is as good as it seems.

Nobody lives forever.

I feel like im going insane.

Eric told me to stay strong.


I can't take the pain.

Loosing my friends.

It hurts.

I just get this feeling, they could die.

I wanted to cry.

Eric told me to stay strong.


Time has inflected its wounds.

I've become a shell of a man.

I can't return to the life I once had.

Because I'd neglect it.

But Eric told me to stay strong.


Well Eric.

Im trying.

But these dumbbells of life,

are getting heavy.

When will they be lifted?

And who is going to take them?

Lets just hope...

You stay strong Eric.

I can relate
when my grandfather died of a stroke my world turned upside down
then I thought, and I thought on the bad for months
but one day I was thinking and I asked myself,
what do I think I am doing?
why am I moping over something that I can't change?
I mean sure it hurts, but it isn't like the world is going to end right?
and then I decided that I have to stay strong for everyone else
great job on the poem

Darkness envolopes us all. Its the certain part of us that we cannot control. the poetic side of me is dark. you have yet to be consumed by the insanity of life, which consumed me once before. tak.. more..
