“A coward dies a thousand deaths... a soldier dies but once.” - Tupac Shakur

im no longer in control
i don't know who i am or where im going
im locked in a world where people kill, where people rape, and where people hurt
im searching for the door
i find it
but theres no key
im waiting to wake up, but soon realize this is not a dream

Alone in the darkness of the world
these 4 walls share my secrets, my pain,my tears
i can hear the devil laughing at me
he sits in a corner waiting for me to fall

He wins.
i have fallen and can't get up
i have no other option but to follow him the dark hole where he came from
i am there lying hopelessly in his arms

no one understands, no one cares
so i stopped as well
i no longer care about what happens to me
i just sit and stare at my 4 walls waiting to die
wondering if there really is an afterlife
and if mine would be better than what it is now

i am being stabbed repeatedly
i feel all the pain but death does not come
i feel my heart turning black with no more emotion

i wonder what is taking so long
so i just here staring at my 4 walls slowly, painfully dying.
because there is nothing else i can do.

The author's comments:
i wrote this when i was feeling depressed. i look back and read it and think it describes what many may be feeling. i hope people realize that there really are people out there that go through the same things.

this is very good and im not just saying so, you've said that you were depressed and stared at your 4 walls.  Where you alone literally or did you feel alone mentally? If you don't mind answering I would like to know.

(P.S. check out my poem its right ahead of yours on prev article)
