I made this poem based on my past and the advice I was given to make me open up my eyes and finally see the world and the way it really looks. I hope you like the poem and feel free to email me if you are in need for an ear or just want a friend.

The burdened mind

Let the shadows consume him, this lonely child seldom weeps…
Broken from the world and his shattered dreams…
Screaming of the hate that harbors deep within him…
Tired of the people, of the guilt that never fades…

“Everything will be okay.” Is what they’d say…
Yet he’d still go home and graze a finger to the blade…
Stuck with the images of his past, never able to put it to rest…
“Why must this happen to me?” Was what he thought of each and every day…
And still there was no change…

Walking on the street, as the people stared confused…
Waited for a car to strike, tired of all the things in this life…
Yet, Still I walk away from a death and feel the tears beckon in him deep…

Staring in the sky he wondered why? And how this could of happened…
Within five weeks he destroyed everything that was dear…
Ran away to save one life, but in his return failed miserably…
Let down his family, and lost everything he use to be…

The tears push through and he struggles to see past those days…
If only he understood that everything would be okay…
And that during the years his blinding tears prevented him to see…

That a life of joy was what we’re meant to see…
And that the good is always here for you and me…

At times in our life we face a challenge that seems too hard to deal with; we’re left wondering why this happened to us and what did we do to deserve such a hard situation. We fail to see that there is good in all things: even the hardest. It is just our job to open up our eyes and heart to see the good even during the bad so that it will not pass us by.
Never give up and know that the good is always there, and happiness is just around the corner waiting for you.
