A Cry For Help

Why won't this, and will it, ever go away?
Why must I suffer with this throbbing in my head?
It never gets any better day after day.
Every morning, I ponder whether or not to get out of bed.
Anything can set off this rain storm of tears;
For I have no control over my own mind.
Sadness takes over and mingles with fears,
Creating an aftermath that's the least bit forgiving or kind.
Try then, after, fight the battle to be freed, Silence and forget the painstaking memories of the past;
But fall and surrender to the self -doubt you'll succeed.
Your conscience pummels you with taunts, each one worser than the last.
Living like this was never my choice.
But, even if I don't wish to continue, I can't find my voice.

This piece is breathtaking. I'm assuming it's straight from your heart, and this is the only piece I've seen to tell my feelings as well. If you crack, just pick up the pieces, and you WILL smile another day. Again, great poem! You'll go far capturing emotions like this so well.
