My Life

by Christopher J. Holmes

My life is filled with ups and downs 
With people from strange places 
With frowns on their faces 

Why am I here? 
Why do I even exist? 
Iím frustrated! 
I wanna take my fist and punch the wall 
Ďtil it bleeds profusely 

My life is filled with people who tell me 
What to do 
And 
How to do it 
They tell me donít worry 
Youíll get through it 

My life 
It seems 
Is coming to an end 
Today I spent time 
With my best friend 
Terrell beause he knows me well 

Heís the reason 
I havenít taken my life 
Today 
Heís encouraged me 
To push on at least 
One more day 

My life was never 
Meant to be understood 
Iíve neglected myself to make 
Others feel good 

My life is spiraling out of control 
And the devil is relentlessly 
After my soul 
Iíve got to escape this pain 
And 
Strife 
And 
Gain control overÖ 
My life
