Hope

The hardest thing is to say goodbye
But broken wings weren't meant to fly  
They fail and send you toward the ground
Where you lie in earth without a sound  
 
The act itself, not hard at all  
When there's nowhere farther you can fall  
Simply look inside the glass  
And take your place within the grass  
 
It's just the few who love you still  
That test your mournful, iron will  
For all the aching, valiant tries  
The barricade is in their eyes  
 
And so I live another day  
And pray that you come out to play  
For the child in me, while still alive  
Can only stay if you survive.

I'm sorry I write so depressingly. If you're sick of it, just turn me off...like the world. lol.
I started a more upbeat poem yesterday, but never finished it. Sad ones come easier.
But it's just writing, right?
