Broken Record

Before Accident

Broken Everything

Fighting Life

No matter what I say or do

It always comes out wrong

Just like a broken record

Over and over the same old song.

Nothing ever turns out right

However hard I may try

It’s one thing and then another

I want to just sit down and cry.

I thought I would be happy

With my family around

But something negative always happens

And keeps my spirits low to the ground.

No matter how much time I spend

Trying to make things right

Someone always knocks it down

And starts a big, huge fight.

Maybe I was wrong

For moving all this way

But now I can’t afford to leave

So I guess this is where I’ll stay.

I’m going to make some changes though

And start keeping everything inside

No one else will know my thoughts

Only in me--will they reside.

This is me now

You gotta find somewhere to let those thoughts out! poetry is the best place :) Like this poem, simple, plaintive and a little bit sad. Be interesting to see the upbeat poetry when the mood changes ah !

Thanks for publishing, I did enjoy this hub. I do agree with alternate poet - changing to upbeat changes the mood. None-the-less, please keep on publishing :)

Thank you for all the wonderful comments. Don't worry, I'll not just put poems like this one on here. Have many many more and some are a lot more upbeat than this one. Just don't have my poetry notebook with me right now lolol.
