Days of Despair Poem Part 2
Just when I begin to feel
That things are getting better
The thoughts come round again and
Days of Despair are there still.
Loneliness washes over me
Even though I am surrounded by
Loved ones each and every day but yet
Days of despair just won’t let me be.
Sadness that just don’t go away
Fills my heart and mind a lot and
Wishing them away do not work so
Days of despair just linger or stay.
While I have everything I need
As well as some of the things I want
There comes a moment in the space of time
Days of despair—my soul does bleed.
Will this cycle ever stop?
It’s almost always the same
A circle going round and round so
Days of despair—up they do pop.
Sometimes I really do wake
With happiness all around
But it doesn’t last long as
Days of despair do a reality check.
I lost my sanity over twenty years ago
And I don’t mean my mind of life’s survival
All beliefs I once held so very dear
Days of despair came and away they did blow.
Learning then that there’s no happy ending
Only eventual pain, hurt, and deceit
So I’ve waded through life for twenty years with
Days of despair being so condescending.
Respite, at times, has come and gone
Good times and memories I do have
The price of which I’ve always been glad to pay but
Days of despair, then and now, make me feel so alone.
