In Your Absense

My life long depression is a direct reflection of all that I lack as a person which stagnates myself expression the wrath of my anger is what I fight to lesson

Yet I know not how and who a teacher to teach there can be no lesson taught

So I live a self revealing life
so lost in all that's wrong
Striving to do what you perceive to be right

When what you feel is right doesn't matter at all
I cant run away fast enough from loneliness
On my knees crying and groaning screaming lord why did you choose me to go threw this unbreakable pain

I really like this poem.

It's real and really pops out at you. Last mine has to be my favorite line. Great work :)
