Letting go

Favim.com-35989

Caught up
In the messiness of life
She bleeds profusely
From the enemy’s knife

A blade so sharp
It easily pierced her heart
A million puncture wounds
The dagger ripped her apart

Nothing to save her
As she’s already given up hope
Tonight she finally let go
She just couldn’t cope

If only someone
Would have told her what to do
Then maybe somehow
She could have made it through

Everyone else
Has their own problems though
Too busy to notice
Blood endlessly flows

Nobody sees her crumpled body
Until it’s too late
Because the world is so void of love
And so full of hate

Compassion failed
This beautiful broken soul
Nobody bothered to tell her
Jesus could make her whole

    So melancholy. These always leave me wondering what drives these thoughts and emotions. The punch line couldn’t be truer though. 🙂

  4. Well I plan to do a follow-up to this poem in the near future. I want to give a little insight and background to some of my other poems as well. I am setting aside Sundays, as days of reflection and hopefully those posts will be more uplifting and encouraging. I have always found that there is something positive that comes from every terrible situation we face in life and I want to share those experiences with others.

    Every valley is a learning experience. Every trough a step further into the heights.

  11. It’s okay, and it’s a testament to the emotional power of your writing. It just hit a nerve; I’m sure you can guess what I’m referring to, too. They were also tears of gratitude that He let me live because He loves me.

  12. I can imagine… so many people suffer at different times in their lives. We never truly know anybody’s story. I’m sorry Dustin… sounds like you’ve been through a lot.

  13. Indeed… Mental illness impacts so many, and yet it is still very much misunderstood..: ( That’s true, and our stories are ongoing and need to be rewritten, you know? It’s okay. I’m a survivor of man things; every instance makes me stronger! I have, yeah. If you ever want to know anything, please feel free to ask.☺
