I’ve been trying
To save the
World
But its killing me
I see your pain
And my pain
And the pain
Of the families
Who have lost loved ones
I know your pain
For I feel
That pain
Everyday
Pain
What a word
It can hold
So much meaning
To some
But to
Others
Ignorant people
The word pain is
Meaningless
I have been managing
Managing to keep
Myself alive
But sometimes
Pain
Twists
My outlook on
Life
If I let myself
Shatter more
Then I let everyone down
I let the people
I give daily hugs to
The people I love
The people I care for
I let them fall
They are the only
Reason I'm still here
And it pains me to
Write this
Just as it pains me
To see my mother cry
Pain
This word
Isn't only a word
It's an evil
It changes people
And makes them see
What is really there
It makes people
Drink to forget
It brings red ink
To the eyes of those
That haven't slept
In years
It stabs people deep
Enough
Into their hearts
That they cannot
Stand to live
I listen to people
They say oh that's so
Sad
Whenever they hear of
Car accidents
Or tragedies
Fires
Floods
Deaths
But they
Can just go on
Living their lives
As if it never
Happened
I am stuck
Remembering
The pain
Everyday
This pain
Is killing me
But maybe if we
All
Tried to save the world
Together
And opened our eyes
To the pain
And remembered
Then maybe
Just maybe
We could finally
Help.
Maybe we could
Spread some light
To the dark
Memories
That so many hold
Maybe we could
Save people
We could
Help
Care
Love
And share a hope
Even if it be
A small hope
It would still
Give
Many a reason
To continue on
Because
In the end
Hope
Is the only thing
That lasts
Forever
Hope
Can't be taken away
From us
It lives deep
In our hearts
And it fights
Pain
Like water
Fights fire
Hope like the
Smile of a child
Or laughter
That ensures
Some day
Everything
Will finally be
Okay.
