It hurts so much
I’m not sure where I feel the pain
I know my life will never be the same

The path I’ve chosen isn’t an ordinary one
I wonder if the worst is over
or yet to come

Strength to climb mountains
courage to fly high
but facing rejection
my heart withers and dies

I know it has to happen
I know this will pass
but right at this moment
I don’t think I can last

It hurts so much
I’m not sure where I feel the pain
I wonder if my life
will be happy again

    I feel odd about liking such a sad poem. Very well written and expressed. Hope things are on the mend.

    I agree with Jarrod, it does seem strange to like a poem that contains such sadness and struggle. So I am glad, Mary, that you are doing well! This poem of yours reads like a song; it has a real lyrical cadence to me. Well done!
