• Sadness


    I am tired of feeling this pain
    I am tired of being in pain
    I want to live and not die
    But sometimes the pain is too strong
    I am young but I am old
    Will this pain ever go
    Will I get to live a life like I want
    So many are scared and afraid
    They don’t understand the pain inside of me
    Day and night all I feel is this pain
    Due to my sickness and disease
    I have lost so many close to me
    They said they were my friends
    But once my illness came
    They didn’t take long to run away
    Now with just my family next to me
    With a few friends that dared to say
    All I have left inside of me is my will
    I have the will to fight but will be to late
    I have so many dreams deep inside my mind
    Why did this have to happen to me
    Did I do something wrong in a past life
    For in this life I knew of no wrong
    No wrong to cause this much pain
    Slowly as my body turns on me
    Everyday I find reason to live
    Will I get the transplant I need in time
    Or slowly by slowly will my body die
    I lay here, trapped in my own body
    I have no choose but to sleep
    Afraid one day I will not wake
    They have me on so many pain pills
    Sometimes it feels like a dream
    I see how hurt and sad my parents are
    For their worse nightmare may come true
    I do have those special friends I hold dare
    They tell me never to give up and fight till the end
    Sometimes I wonder if the end will come for me
    As the end can see me, dare Lord I want to live
    Due to this disease taking over my body
    It already took one thing from me
    I no longer can have my dreams of children
    For it destroyed everything inside of me
    Now I dream only to fight
    Fight to stay alive, fight all odds
    Will I live or will I die
    Why does this pain never go away
    One by one my organs die
    Is it no bad enough I had my teeth pulled
    Is it no bad enough you are killing me inside
    Will when it be enough
    Will it be enough when the end comes
    As I fight to stay alive
    It kills me deep inside
    To see so many people hate and kill
    When all I fight is for life
    And to watch my god son grow into a man
    Lord will you only give me this
    If nothing more comes my way
    And the end shall find me again
    For a friend I hold close to me
    Asked me to fight for my life
    As I am a godparent to her son
    At lease this joy I can treat like my own
    So bless me with no children
    Just bless me to live is all I ask

    (Dedicated To A Friend)
