Turn Around

Lost in every way, Almost every day,
Watch me disengage, Freed from this rage,
Yet locked in this cage, Ending in sorrow, 
it will be better tommorrow, Atleast I hope so,
Pick yourself back up slow, Then you can just go,
I will never rid myself from pain, 
So theres nothing to gain, 
Here's where I would start to explain,
I'm the one to take the blame, 
Thats right, I'm not affriad to claim it,
I'm the one that makes you feel like this,
Even though I've done all these things to the fullest mass,
I'd do anything to change it, And make a positive turn around fast.

    Nice expressive thoughts to get rid of pain Scott. The best thing is you are turning around to jump in to positive thoughts. Nice rhyming poem. I will read your poems again. I see you in Poetry Soup. I am learning a lot by joining this website. And I love the positive comments I got from the veterans. Thank you for your positive comments. Dalila

    nice words. Keep digging deep in your soul. Even if it hurts ripping out the painful cancers of every day life. You are young, or so it seems. But young writers are often the best writers. ~JSLambert Esquire
