Poetry- Stuck Here Again

Updated on June 14, 2012

Lisa is a substitute teacher who studies English Literature. She lives to write and is following her dream of becoming a professor.

Alone again within the perils of my mind

Lost and lonely once I left the past behind

Soaring through the sky falling to my death

Wondering if this will be my last breath

Essence of hate and fear

Bottled up with the tears

Happy mother, happy wife

This has become my life

I have no voice, I cannot be heard

What I have to say is a little beyond absurd

Stuck here again, stuck here for good

Completely misguided, totally misunderstood

Put on a smile; laugh out loud, love life

Why bother questioning it when you’re bound to die

Alone is good, alone is bad

Alone is all that I have

Step up to the plate and get ready to run

Whoever said that this was going to be fun?

Smile for the cameras let them into your lie

The sooner you learn to live the sooner you’ll learn to die

Take a breath it will be ok

You have earned the right to live another day

Remember all the good in your life

Remember that you’re a wonderful mother and a decent wife

Take a breath Make your decisions but make sure you choose right

Because no one else will be willing to fight this fight

Stuck here again, stuck here for good

Completely misguided, totally misunderstood

Put on a smile; laugh out loud, love life

Why bother questioning life when you’re bound to die
