Grieving Inside

Sacrifices I've made for loves ones
Long face, sad heart, painful days
Not even a clue if things would be like it is today
Bad choices which I am now paying it with my life
Loss in the games most of the times
Getting beat down and crumble
Bad luck seems to be chasing me all the times
It stole my smile and hide away my happiness
Every Time one appear it just wipe it off
No pity at all, no mercy
Nothing is fair
My heart cries all the times
Loved ones I've let down
Loved ones I've disappointed
It wasn't my intention
Silliness caused all this
Gilts I'm feeling inside out 
Shame has covered my face
Try I have
Sometimes makes me wonder
Should I even bother
Bad thoughts invading my mind
I want to finish it once and for all
But when I think how much pain this will cause my loved ones
Only if they knew how depressed and sad I am
So for their sake...
...I tied my heart and carry on to carry my cross
Why, why?
from now on my life is useless
From now on I'm nothing

    The heart really should start to fly & go up from here. It's easy to fall, I get that. But, nothing is worth stopping life & rejecting all that is good because of the "flaws" that can be removed from self. Great work & respect to you for this piece. Nice to meet you!
