The World Around Me

Alicia BeavisPosted by Alicia Beavis 22 May, 2009 08:45PM

I figured, after reading this, I was angry at the world for some reason! I'm not really a good poet so don't be too harsh! Haha! Any feedback welcomed like always!

I live for the precious time we call today
To cast my crystal tears away
I live for tommorow
With its painful, heartfelt memories
With all of its sorrow

I feel this horror
Sometimes it turns to pure hate
Because of everyone in this world
Who has dared to discriminate
Though i'm sure we all have
Even if we won't admit the truth
We know it's still there

Through these deep dark eyes
I watch this world
Witness it crashing and burning
Slowly dying
How can i stop these tears, this crying?
It's all down to us
All our pitiful, selfish ways
Today the years of our lives
Are limited down to numbered days

Always expecting the worst to come and take us from this world
Many waiting for the angel of death to return
To take them to solitude and darkness

My vision is blurred
Im unsure of my directions
Yet i can still see
So much violence and anger
Deeply hidden in me

My heart is falling deeper into depression
I feel like i'm just a figure, a shadow
Only there to fill the empty spaces
All my daemons needing to be released
They need to be set free

Though this may be the case
I know i'm not the only one
We are never really alone
Someone else always stuck in this solitude we have created

I have to get it sorted
I know i have to get myself through
Living in this emptiness,This coldness
Whilst lives, lived out are aborted, thwarted!
Mine will still be going strong
I've got to move on!
