Here I am
Sitting alone
Wondering what to do next.
As I think
I continue to become depressed
Because my mind won't give some things a rest.
Now I realize
Happiness doesn't last long
Just like love it withers away.
Leaving the feeling
Of resentment, sorrow, anger, and distress
But that's just a price you pay.
Like a rollercoaster
My emotions goes up and down
Finally it reached its last ride.
Question is
Should I stay or get off?
Should I go try another ride?
Here I am
Staring at my bedroom's wall
Thinking of what tomorrow will bring.
Will it be
Happiness or sadness?
Will it be more burden or sorrow?
Staring at my wall
Not a tear drop
Not a sound was made, except the beating of my heart.
No words left my lips
I sat there like a statue
The outside world did not exist.
Alone in the room
Was me and my pain
Staring each other in the eye.
Question is
Will I move on and let the pain heal?
Or will I continue to feel like I am?

This really got to me in a way that not many things can.
I'm not sure what there is for me to say so I'll just say that I thought that this was an excellent poem.
I found myself relating to your poem and I would like your permission to post it on my one online journal. I promise that you will recieve the credit for it but this fits me too well to be ignored. I may not know what you're going through but I've felt that way before. I don't know what you believe, but I'll be praying for you.
Never give up.
