I would like to believe in something more than myself

But despair and fear has got me chained down

I would like to see the sky turn blue

But my hopes and dreams never come true


I would like to believe that I could fly

Soaring past the clouds so white

But sadness and misery are by my side

Clutching me close; I can’t hide


It’s nothing but despair

Nothing but fear

Anguish and torment

It hurts this very moment


But I still believe

  1. I love the way the physical position of the poem on the page reflects the dwindling faith. Then, in the end, there’s still a bit of hope or belief in something left even though it’s like the sadness is bearing down or burying it. ❤
