This is a poem i wrote ages ago...its 2 pages long and still doesnt feel finished... i used to write lots of poetry...but havent in a while...maybe ill write again soon...tell me what u think... The Endless Struggle I’m stuck in a hole and I can’t get out there’s no-one there to hear my shout They’ve dug me down, they’ve dug me deep So now I sit here and I weep Because what they’ve done has hurt me bad And they are sitting up there glad They are my friends but they’re bullies you see they don’t really know how much they’ve hurt me It isn’t causing physical pain But it is causing mental strain They say they don’t mean it but that is a LIE! You can see the meaning in their eye I hate their games, they’re getting old I’ve got to stand up! I’ve got to be bold! I shouldn’t be scared about what they might do Because they can’t hurt me when I’m here with you They do not want you to know So they will wait until you go Then when you’re gone they will turn and strike They think they can do what they like They do not strike on more than one For that is when they turn and run They run and hide until they see That you have gone away from me That’s when they come and get me you know But I try to not let it show It’s an endless struggle each day for me I wish they would go and let me be But I have to wait until they do But for now I feel safe here with you Please don’t leave me! Don’t go away! Because for now you’re keeping them at bay Please stay with me! Please stay near! I really don’t want them to come here! When you’re gone they will come back They always travel in a pack As a group they circle me Calling names and smiling with glee I do not like it, not a bit It makes me feel like I’m stuck in a pit It feels lonely dark and cold I know I should stand up and be bold I don’t think I can but I know I should I really really wish I could Could you help me? Could you please try? I do not like to sit and cry Please help me out, help set me free Please help to make them leave me be! I want them all to go away Far far far far far away! Where I cannot hear them call me names Where I don’t have to put up with their little games I want to stand up I really do I don’t want to have to hide behind you That’s it! I’m through! I’ve had enough! This life is getting way too rough! I will stand up and get them back! I will defeat their evil pack! I don’t know how but I will try! Never again will I sit and cry! I won’t let them hurt me like that again I will not have to put up with the pain This ends now and this ends here! I should not have to live in fear!
