My Poems: Trying
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Noreen asked this to be put up, but I may take it off.
I keep looking for a way,
Trying to get better every day,
I stand here, alone.
I keep trying and I need one,
One thing to believe instead of none.
There is a window to my right,
But I see darkness instead of light.
I stand here in wonder.
I keep seeing lightning but hear no thunder,
Feel myself getting pulled under.
You can’t see me,
My mind tells me a story I cannot see.
I stand here in pain,
Wondering if I am insane,
Where is the thunder when I only see rain?
Tried to save a life,
All I caused was inner strife.
I stand here in grief,
My life is so brief,
Before blooming, I am a fallen leaf.
