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
