Black hole

Black_Hole_Milkyway

Depression is like a black hole.

Gravity so powerful it won’t let light escape.

A heavy weight on my soul.

Despite this gravity I still use all my might to stand.  

 

I’ve seen so many fall along the way.

Unseen victims of bullies and apathy

All that is left is for them is to pray,

Pray that someone will show them empathy.

Aesop, words weigh us down.

 

There was once a young boy.

The boy could not speak well of himself.

He often call himself stupid, a loser, or worthless.

Each word added a chain to the boy.

Each chain would weigh on the boy.

As time passed the boys burden grow more and more heavy.

The heavier the boy became, the more he spoke ill of himself.

As boy grow more and more frustrated with his burden, he hated himself more.

The boys burden grow so great that he could no longer move.

Because he could no longer move he deemed his life unimportant.

While only thinking and speaking ill of himself, the boy was crushed by his chains.

War in your head

War Brain by Kazanevski

 

The Human mind is a battlefield.

Each thought and emotion a battalion

Trying to force each other to yield

Yet they won’t earn even a medallion

 

Each fight scars our mind

Each draw a indecision

You feel confined

Your motives divisioned

 

How can you succeed

While your mind a disarray

You must proceed

and not fall astray

because the thought you heed

Is the thought you feed

 

I carry my past

As i plow ahead

All that I amassed

All that I Dread

 

Not to say this weighs me down

Not to say it makes me weak

In the past i would drown

I was always so meek

 

Now it is a part of me

It makes me strong

Without it i would not be

It is a part of my song

 

Am alive

 

Am living because I want to be alive

I can’t be a reluctant survivor

A decent life I must strive

Or I become like a car with no driver

 

Am alive because I want to live

So myself I must forgive
