Alone in life
and the hereafter
pain inside
that will never disappear
I want it all
to go away
but without it here
I'm lost in a daze
I've never been free
of these emotional scars
and without pain
I'll never get far
it drives me on
it pushes me to win
It will never go away
for this I am glad
but at the same time
I wish it would
i don't know why I'm here
or what's my destiny
but i keep on going
down this path in life
sometimes overgrown
and narrow to walk
sometimes a four lane highway
looking for a place to cross
but no matter where i am
or where I go in life
my pain is there to draw on
giving ME the strength
- to survive

~~~dream as if you'll live as if you'll die today~~~

This poem hit home for me.
It was wonderfully written and I thought that it was powerful in how it seemed almost passive in the approach. Almost like you were just stating what you felt and we can take whatever we want from it. I have to say I really enjoyed this poem.
