This is a poem in response to a video I watched of a young girl, the same age as me, who’s both parents passed away suddenly.

I try to be strong

I try to hold on

But the pain is more

Than I can take

A knife to the stake

 

I try not to cry

Hold my face up

Towards the light

But it mocks me

It locks me tight

 

It speaks the smiles

That I lost

It shines on the innocent

At what cost?

 

 

For love that was near

For bruises that will wear

For memories that will fade

Into eternal shade

 

I hold my head up

I hold the pain in

I try not to cry

I try to grin

 

I don’t want to be strong anymore

It’s harder to fake a smile

Pretending like they are not gone

They won’t be just another note in the file

 

When can I stop this game

They are in peace

While I walk in pain

When will I forget the deceased

 

They’re not in pain

Anymore

Let the tears

Pour

Cheers
