How many more tears do I have to cry,

how many more years til I understand why?

How many more of those long sleepless nights?

How much longer till I know im gonna be alright?

Wanting to belong is all that I need,

just wanting to be loved isnt acting in greed.

How many more sad poems will I write as I read,

its hard knowing it all come about from one little seed.

I see so many lives surrounding me with cheer,

then I see myself all balled up in fear.

To bad life doesn't have a wheel I can steer,

I guess I will just sit back down for now im just here.

Will I ever let go of this pain from my past?

or does this nightmare I live plan to always last.

Its all coming at me to hard and to fast,

feeling like im smothered in a full body cast.

Trying to understand where it is I belong,

trying to stay alert,but at the same time stay strong.

No matter what i've done its always been wrong,

at least thats what i have heard for so long.

I turn my head as I sit and pray,

hoping tomorrow brings a peaceful day.

Solitary and alone is how I must stay,

but still the pain and torture wont go away...

Eleanor Roosevelt once said: "No one can make you feel inferior unless you let them". Never forget that. The critics in life will always try to make you into something less than what you know you are. It is said that those who are closest to us will try to hurt us the most. My prayers are with you.

This is a very touching poem. I definitely understand where you're coming from. You should be very proud of yourself. Like you say, just keeping moving forward one step at a time and always love and believe in YOURSELF! NOBODY CAN STOP YOU! God bless.
