My mind is burning with the question
Why am I here,Why cant I leave?
I feel no movement or progression
As I'm longing to be free
All the people that I've lost
Who somehow to me were dear
They will never know the cost
Of how much I need them here
I often wonder throught the night
Why God chose to place me here
Crippled by remorse and fright
As I'm crying silent tears
Everything was going well
'til these thoughts entered my head
Saying I should end myself
And it was my fault instead
But alas my eyes are dry
I grit my teeth so I dont cry
Fear is what first closed my eyes
What you see is a disguise
14 years have gone so fast
I cant recover whats in the past
Memories that I keep guarded
Which has left me heavy hearted But now I know that I'm not worthless
For God has shown me divine purpose

That was absolutely one of the most amazing and touching poems I've ever read!! I know it came from the heart and don't feel bad I've been there 2.
