Which hurts the most:
Saying something and wishing you had not,
Or saying nothing,
and wishing you had?


I'm running;
I'm fighting;
I'm trying to hold onto what's left of me.
but,
it's not easy,
the reasons are left unknown.
Why does it have to be this way?

I'm gonna fight for what's right;
gonna fight all alone.
I'm gonna hold on tight;
trying to stay so strong,
all by myself...

I can't find,
the reason,
why I'm feeling so alone.
You see,
I cannot cope,
with all these emotions inside;
that I'm trying so hard to hide;
that are making so much commotion.

I'm gonna fight for what's right;
gonna fight all alone.
I'm gonna hold on tight;
trying to stay so strong,
all by myself...

Time begins to slow,
as my emotions seem to grow.
And none of this seems real,
as I feel so numb and week.
Why is this so hard?

I'm gonna fight for what's right;
gonna fight all alone.
I'm gonna hold on tight;
trying to stay so strong,
all by myself...

I'm gonna fight for what's right;
and I'm gonna fight all alone.
I'm gonna hold on tight;
trying to be so strong but,
I lost the fight...

The author's comments:
I wrote this yesterday when I was feeling depressed which is pretty much all the time, anyways, it's about me trying to fight the depression and staying strong...or trying to. I have this put to music too.

This was truly AMAZING!!! I loved every word of it. I feel like i can also relate to this, because i have been feeling sort of depressed my self. But great work. I love it. If you put music to it i would like to hear it.

Wow you have some real talent there. Stay strong and remember that many people feel thsi way, including me. We're here and know how you feel luv. It'll be ok. Keep writing and don't let anyone say you don't rock because I think is some of the best lyrics I've read in a while. Great job. :)

This is an excellent poem. I can feel the emotions moving inside me, making me want to stop laying defeated and stand up, all cuts and bruises and fight for what's right.

I can not dwell on the past, and I will not live on what the future may hold, but yet take comfort and find perpose in the second yet to come.

I think to fight for whats right is a very good thing, and like the other comment said "we dont have to fight alone" some times we may feel alone but look to the inside you will find you are never alone. keep up the gud work and remember to smile :)

This poem is great and I know the feeling of being all alone in the world for I have felt it many times. My advice to you is when you "cannot cope with all the emotions inside" is to find something constructive to do. You seem to be an excellent poet; maybe writing is your outlet for your feelings. Also you never "fight all alone" there is always someone there who will let you cry onto their shoulder whether you know it or not. You just have to find them. Do not say that you "lost the fight" it is only over if you give up. Think positive and keep your head high for the grass is always greener on the other side.
