Broken Record

Updated on January 22, 2014

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

      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.

      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 :)

      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 !
