New Day (Maybe)

I want a world that doesn't bleed
I want a voice that doesn't have to scream

Can you hear it?
Do you get the feeling?

I never asked for these scars
Never wanted these nightmares for memories

Who wants to wake up falling?
Who wants to dream of nothing?

I can't take it
Stop staring
Stop judging
Just stop breathing

I'm no different
I"m far from normal
I'm not different
I'm so far away

Do you feel it?
Coming on
And on
And on
And on
And on

Broken-hearted
Trampled under
Foot
A face you'll never know
Am I running from myself?

Running in circles
Circles again
A pair of eyes to see
Bloodshot

Can you feel the anxiety?

I don't wanna go
I want to go
I don't wanna go
I want to go

Sometimes I wish
For them to just
Take me away

Sometimes I wish
For the new day
To come

I don't know anymore...

yup! Mostly we run away from ourselves without letting the "us" in ourselves know it. And really we should not wait for others judgement or approval, as i believe in self-acceptance. We should be satisfied with our work that's it. Nice poem! Cu soon

Very real.
It's a true contemplation of emotion- i want to go, don't want to go- like a battle within oneself. Very strong- maybe the lyrics to a song?

This is a really good poem too, can absolutely relate to it. I write some poetry too, maybe I should add some to my site. Thank you for comment and that is good idea! You link to me and I'll link to your site? And to your question about my blog, yes you seem like a really good guy =)
