Nowhere to go
Blocked roads
Every corner curved
Turned, tried,
Only one road left
I toss and turn
To find
no hope Again
I lie awake
Unable to think
A logical thought
It's death you send my way
A plot to imprison my spirit,
am trying to understand.
Dare I speak remnants
Of anger, dare I comment,
thoughts are in control.
I'll be silent,
my sadness
is your comfort.
A monotonous
Bitterness nesting
in 'pregnant silence' ,
I surrender
my plans to you.

"Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding" Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

The prophet khalil you quote...
... encourages you about your condition. According to him, the pain you so eloquently describe brings with it a reward. Is the shell of your understanding breaking? Your ability to write such a poem that shows progression and tells a painfully beautiful story suggest that you are gaining more understanding as a result of your experience. So pain is only one side of the coin for you. Hopefully, the joy of this new understanding will be found on the other side of the coin. This is my wish for you.

Your poem is good but really depressing. it says you are trying to control what you cannot control. let it got low self esteem and it looks like your getten to find comfort and identity through validation from outside yourself. its killing you girl. i don't let bitterness into my world or vocabulary. it is a wasted emotion. move on and lift your head up. think for yourself.God ain't gonna make it better unless you stop hating yourself and others. surrendering to self loathing is pitiful not holy. you're a real good writer.
