Alone

Stuck in a hole, I dug myself



Surrounded by all my fears



Can any one hear me I scream I shout



I'm down hear let me out



They all walk by without a clue



No one can hear me



What should I do



Day turns to night



My hope turns gray



Alone, Invisible, Scared



All I have are my thoughts



A pessimistic view of the world



Which put me here to begin with



I started to shake I started to cry



Then something caught my eye



You were with me the whole time



How could I have been so blind



Not to see the thing that means the most to me



You took my hand to show me the way out of my hole, out of my daze



You remove all the fears



Then my head starts to clear



They start to see me, I reappear



You vision for me is becoming clear



Live while you can



Cause one day it will end



I have learned this for a true friend



Who I no longer can see



But I know is always with me

Wow, I love this so much. It shows how we lose sight of things sometimes but our true friends are there to pick us up and show us the way.

Really great poem, i like how it talks about how that certain person can dig you out of your hole, reminds me of Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
