A Poem by Kitt

Keep Smiling

 

Why are you treating me like a child?

Can’t you see my pain?

And all these tears I’m crying

Does it look like it’s a game?

Why won’t you listen to what I saying?

Don’t you tell me how to feel

And all these things around me

Is any of it real?

Can’t you tell I’m trying?

I’d rather not be the victim

But again I am failing

So again they’re dumb

Can anyone help me?

Or am I all alone?

These sleepless nights I’m facing

I’m hurting to the bone

Does anyone understand me?

I’m swear I’m not that lost

But I guess that’s not the question

You’re still looking at the cost

It’s always to you convince

You rather not face the fact

You’re telling me just drop it

But I swear it’s not an act

But I am brilliant at masquerades

I’ll never tell you what I’m thinking

Perhaps if I just took my life

It’d be less painful than sinking

I see you crying from my words

I’m sorry, I’ll keep going

But each day’s a little harder

The pain is always growing

There’s too much pain inside of me

I’ve tried hiding it for years

I never wanted you to know the truth

I rather have spared you all the tears

So my body builds a defense

And so I become numb

But my reality is still slipping

Is now really a time to play dumb?

I’m sorry, forgive me

I know you’re not to blame

But I’m nothing but a weakness

I’m buried in my shame

I haven’t a place to turn

No one seems to know what’s wrong

So I’m sent too many hospitals

Never for very long

The stays do not help

I’m still trapped within my mind

I have another side that takes me

Unfortunately, she’s not as kind

There is a little girl

Upt! Never mind

Another mark to the chart

My mind’s still in decline

I’m so upset, will this be fixed?

Chances to me look grime

Will this medicine work?

Success is rather slim

I know you’re waiting for a happy ending

Unfortunately this is reality

Where nothing ever does get better

Where joy’s a technicality

I’ve known for years what I must do

It’s the only think I know

Suck it up and learn to deal

Place a smile and go.

I liked it, It has a song lyrics kinda feel. you did break you cadence more then a few times so it loses some power there. I feel that when you make a poem that is as if you are saying it aloud. rhyming your cadence is a bad idea. it makes it feel more like a song.
hope that makes since. Still good work friend.
