I Wish I Could Die

I wish I could die and leave all
the pain behind, I wouldn't even
say goodbye or tell my family why
I would just die.
They would call me weak they would
think I just ran away from the things
I couldn't defeat.
But they don't know the real reason
why I wanted to die it's not because
the things I couldn't defeat or that
I'm weak it's just I couldn't get
away from me.

sounds as if you need a hug and not a review of your poem. although your sadness comes through quite effectively

Come back , you can live this life.... Not everyone hurts , there are few people always around you ( sent by God ) who loves you..... . you can survive ..... Your strength is your PEN .... write , write and write.

I Want To Say I Understand Your Words and Know There Would Be More Thought If Your Poem Is A Prequel To Events To Come. Pain Can Be Overwhelming While Words Make It All That More Real. I Applaud You For Sharing With Strangers Such A Powerful Display Of Words That Each One Can Feel. May Your Words Give You Freedom To Release All That Holds You......

I think you touched a chord with many other people who share the same emotions. I felt reminded and understanding.

Hi Jason Harris! I see you have written a poem that tends to tell me that you a quite familiar about the subject. Well, me too! I was hit twice, by explosions, in Vietnam years ago, while I served my country as a U.S.M.C. Every time the weather changes I get a wake-up call from the pain. So I can relate with your subject. Keep writing! Lucian Tower
