There’s a pain we will all feel
Whether it’s fake or whether it’s real
Whether we can walk the night, feeling it’s right
Filled with fright,
If we ever live or if we die.

But hey, death ain’t that scary you know
Whether it’s fast, or whether it’s really slow.

Why do we have to feel this way
With nothing to say
Without a doubt in our minds
You know I’m right.
But here I am, crying out in pain
With nothing to gain
It’s better then being lost in the rain
It’s goin away.

I’m lost in this storm
All the signs are down and gone
My hands are in the air
I’m screaming “NO MORE!”

I’m dying, tears on my face
Why can’t someone be in my place
My lungs are burning
I can’t finish this race.

Yeah, my body is aching and sore
My heart can’t take no more
My wings cannot fly
I’m unable to score.

Loss has gotten a hold on me
It’s killing me
I’m being buried alive
But no one can see.

Without some of this pain
What is there to gain?
I hate feeling this way
But someone’s gotta say,

It’ll be alright.

I am truly speechless! Your poem is so relatable in a way that we all happen to live this moment once in a while for pain is actually part of the deal made with life. But also, I found your poem kind of unique in the way that you used so much imagery and so many emotions. This is only to say that your poem was full of depth, meaning and simply true. So yes it is Unique ^_^ So don't you ever think to stop writing cuz you have a lot talent and potential. Keep it up and thank you so very much f... (more »)

Very emotional and powerful! I love the race metaphor! Maybe fix some grammatical errors? Otherwise, I love it!
