Why must I Die inside?

Why must I die inside?
I am crushed inside from past experiences that I have not let go of.
I have tried to erase all the things that are holding me back.
I have tried not to remember how many times I was raped and torn apart inside.
I cannot remember when I have really and truly laughed and felt it inside.
I am pressed down with so many issues and hurt from family and friends.
I have tried to live my life with humility and honestly and Love.
I reach out to people with sincere compassion.
I want to live
Why must I die inside?

    Congratulations Cathy, on your poem being featured this week. Sadly, some families appear to be fine and happy on the outside, when in reality unpleasantries are occurring on the inside. I hope you work it out and can live again...Joy delights! (I went to school in South Florida with a girl named Cathy Holmes. Her dad was a mon's doctor.) Lovingly, Dane Ann

    Sorry, I missed this when it was first posted, Cathy. This is a heartfelt write. I'd like to refer you to Deb Guzzi's "High Bred-Reality". Life on this journey is never going to be what it should, but there will come a new day, I believe. Congratulations on being featured this week on soup. God bless. Love, Annalise

    Congrats on your poem being featured this week. Yes, you have captured the torment that lives inside. I know we all have felt at times that we have died inside. Excellent . Phyl
