Sometimes

Sometimes,
I feel like,
My world is left to burn.

Sometimes,
People say that,
They’re so sorry to learn…

Sometimes,
I hate it,
I hate the growing pain.

Sometimes,
I want to,
Just forget and play again.

Sometimes,
I know that,
What my Mum says is right.

Sometimes,
I wish she,
Could make me believe her fight.

Sometimes,
I get so,
Depressed and weaken.

Sometimes,
I cannot reach,
That hopeful beacon.

And sometimes,
Most times,
I can see my disease spread.

And sometimes,
Most times,
I wish that I was dead.

But sometimes,
Other times,
I hope I’ll pull through.

But sometimes,
Other times,
I’ll do it all for you.

Sometimes,
I try desperately,
To laugh, sing and smile.

Sometimes,
I think,
Maybe if I try for a while...

And, finally, sometimes,
I struggle on for,
Me.

And, finally, sometimes,
I’m selfish,
It’s ME.

I thought of somebody suffering from cancer and their emotional turmoil. Hope you like it.

In that case, help me spread the love! Share the thought with others. The world could use some caring anytime. :) P.S. Now you've made mine. ;)

Aw thanks for your kind comments, I'm glad you liked this. Not keen on this now as I wrote it a while ago, but I suppose it has a relatable message. I hope the continuation of it isn't true!

The progression of the poem was really interesting. I particularly liked the "most times" and "other times." I was about to skip to the end and decide that the repetition was getting on my nerves, but those lines brought something new and revived the poem, right where the mood also became more positive. Overall, the whole thing came together really well, and a strong finish!
