Drowning in Life

Drowning in Life

A Poem by Speak in Silence

Drowning in life
Slowly my heads going under
No one to help me
All I can do is wonder,

Does anyone know?
Does anyone care?
Of course nobody does
All they do is standby and stare

Fight for life,
Or at least I used to
I don't even care anymore
This is the least I can do

Yell at me, do it. I don't care
You are nothing to me anymore
You used to be my everything,
But now, you're just a b***h, and nothing more.

You say you have it harder than me
You say I've changed
I just listen
I am at a cross road, I'm caged

Caged with defeat
Strung up with lies
If you saw the world like me
You'd understand why

My cage filling with water
There's no way out
Fighting for breath, no one can save me now
Everyone thought I was crazy, they were in doubt

They thought I wouldn't do it
I guess you were all wrong
I guess I was the only one who knew
I wasn't that strong

Hope everyone is all happy
I know I am
To the world, f**k you all
The gun makes a loud, bam.

well...one can't help but feel very strongly the anger, no...the rage within this write. older folks will alwaystell you they had it harder...here's a little secret and possibly some fuel for your fire (i am well into my 50's and i can tell you in no uncertain terms that with each generation life does get harder...adults only know what they went through and can't see your struggles) so get your angst out in writing instead of violence...you'll be a better person for it. this write is fabulous and emotional...loved it!

This is really creative. If anyone was to say that they didn't like this, I would assume there's something wrong with them :) You're a really fantastic writer, I hope you know that by now :) Keep up the good work!

Wow, a true master piece. :) couldn't have written better myself. Keep up the good work. And if you don't do great in math, stick with writing. Heck stick with writing no matter what.
