Resist- A Poem

Updated on October 5, 2014

Resist

Please believe it's hard to retrieve,

this gentle heart I've worn on my sleeve.

It's been there so long I cannot conceive,

how it still has the vigor to bleed.

The pain of the world in such a small place,

there has been so much I fail to trace.

What did I do, how did I go wrong?

To be so alone, to have this sad song.

My scream is resonant, it fill my head.

Trying to remember the things once said.

Alleviate my struggle, please free my scourge.

Appreciate my attempt to resist this urge.
