Nothing Will Change

You can run,
You can hide,
But the pain will find you.

You can sleep,
You can dream,
But the memories still linger.

You can love,
You can like,
But the hate remains in your heart.

You can cry,
You can scream,
But the shame is yours alone.

You can smile,
You can laugh,
But the aches you still feel.

You can call,
You can talk,
But the sound doesn't come.

You can cover up,
You can stop,
But the scars will always exist.

Anything you do,
Still nothing will change,
You can stop trying now.

I was in a very dark place when I wrote this poem. I wrote poetry every day for two years--it's what helped me overcome my hard times. This has always been one of my favorites.
