my poetry

Dark

The sadness that plagues me

Attaches tight

Makes itself at home

Constantly bringing me down

Down

Down

Deeper into the dark

The lonely,

Painful dark

It hurts so much

To be so sad

But the dark

Has such a tight grip

I can’t get away

It surrounds me

Holds me close

And doesn’t let go

Keep Going

One foot in front of the other

That’s all I need to do

Keep going

Follow my dreams

As close as I can

Keep them in sight

Don’t let them get out of reach

Stay positive

Keep my feet moving

Keep my heart beating

Keep my head up

Keep going

And stand tall

Put that smile on my face

And do what makes me happy
