A Blind But Seeing Eye


You say you have no future,
That it hurts too much today,
But one day you'll be free,
From the surroundings of pain.
Everyday a small grain vanishes,
Eventually the sorrow's worn away,
I promise you with all my heart,
It won't always be this way.
And suicide's never painless,
People are left behind,
To deal with all the misery,
That made you want to hide.
I am always with you,
In your heart and in your mind,
If things become too much,
A shelter you must find...

    I think this is a poem that might inspire people to keep on living despite their misery. It is important to remember, that there are always people who are hurt when we are gone. Always. (Report) Reply

    Yes, nothing is permanent, neither joy nor sorrow; what is painful now will soon go; but we must live, live, live and live because there is only one life...and we live but once. (Report) Reply

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
