Another Mile

Listening to the whispering voices
Not believing I’m important enough
I let them make for me my sorrowful choices
Starting to believe life is way too tough

I would like to keep my feelings at bay
So I can once more feel the need to smile
No longer can I keep this depression away
I can no longer walk another mile

Now in the mirror all I see is a disgrace
Why am I cursed to live this tragic lie
I do not think I can finish this race
As I feel I deserve the right to die

Even as I take my very last breath
You have no idea how much I look forward to death

The author's comments:
In my English class our assignment was to write a sonnet and while it took me a while I thought this came out quite nicely, despite it being a little depressing.
