Why do I even try

Why do I even try

A Poem by Brandon Bretsnyder

Why do I even try
When all I want to do is cry
With each step that I take
I continually feel as if I’m going to break
I don’t want to live here anymore
This world has taken everything that I adore
Why does this always happen to me
Why can’t anybody see
The pain I feel is unbearable
Pain most people couldn’t even handle
I’m sick of everybody trying to pull me down
I’m sick of everybody trying to make me frown
Why do I even try
When all I want to do is die

A powerful poem that described struggle and disappointment. Easy to be pissed-off and know anger. Sometime us the disappointment to show the world. You are worth a lot. A very good poem. You left the reader with something to think about.
