The Pain Has Stopped

The pain has stopped
I ‘m off my knees can hear myself
whisper…. I’ll be okay…please let me be okay
even if it's just for ….today

it’s funny how life goes
one day you have it all
the next nobody  knows
………you  or cares who you are
what you do  or where you been 
the autographs you've signed
when people were easily wooed 
but now, they only care about 
the color of your sins 

as for me I ‘ll stand again
on my own again …but I’ll stand again
but i am on my knees to say 
the pain has finally stopped

got to a point where life did not
matter….where going on was a debate
dragged me down life’s long ladder
left me there
…. to cry
and I did and I have 
….and perhaps tomorrow i will again
but no more tears... today , thankfully
….the pain is gone for now

    So, this is not from personal experience then, but fiction? But you write as if you know quite well. How does one know so well, if one has not been there? Were you thinking then of celebrities? I think you are right on about this, Irish. Great work! Thanks for sharing. Caroline.

    Beautiful poem, to just let your emotions flow is always the beginning of healing and mend. just the start. and your second stanza speaks a lot about people who go on with their lives if they are happy one day, and see a person so depressed, they don't bother to ask even if they know of you. there are few people in this world who will actually sit down and really listen. -Always&Forever Lynette
