The Abyss

Anger so deep it penetrates, agitates and aggravates
Feeling so helpless, clueless and ruthless
Knowing my physical pain and the flaw in my brain is like a derailing train
Wondering why no one cares and no one is there.  Why do they all sit with a blank stare?
Confused as to why I can't grow.  Who is it I really know?  With whom my emotions I should 
Tired of all the selfishness and phoney bliss.  This is truly an abyss.
Questioning if I really exist.  I think I'm here, but Maybe I'm just a mist.  Maybe I don't get 
the gist.
Frustrated that I even need a crutch.  Do I really ask for too much?
Sad for myself too much it seems.  I'm free of flaws in a distant dream.  I want to 
Never can I get along.  I'm never good enough and I don't belong.  Why is everything so

Holding on by a thread.  There are so many things I dread.  I sink again and my soul is dead.
Why do I suffer this way?  Why do I have to pay?  All I ever used to do is pray, but not today

this life
Misunderstood all of the time as if I've committed some crime.  It's about time I end this 
rhyme.  After all it's not so sublime.

    wit in the ending was very refreshing. this was another very thought provoking piece. your sense of words in rhymes is very wonderful. its a very smooth style, a steady lullaby. almost ironic that this can be a very good way to describe anger. well written thankyou. madison
