A poem from last Year

by Autumn Jane Sky

So this is a sorta free verse lyric I wrote for my English class last year. Hope you like it. Sorta dark though. Happier ones still to come

Β One more.

One more year, one more week,

One more second In one more day,

One more sunrise, one more breath

One more night, don’t fade away.

 

They tell you, “you’re a fighter,”

Yet the don’t see the blood

Or burns etched by the fire

Or tears that come in floods.

 

They tell you to keep living,

When yoy feel dead inside

They say that it gets better,

Get up, stand out, don’t hide.

 

So you live one more day,

Counting minutes go by.

They add up to all these years

You spent praying to die.

 

You see one more sunrise

Hold your head up with pride

You’ve made it this far

Might be time to say goodbye.

 

You take once last breathe

Face the evil from within

Whatever love was left,

Won’t ever let you win.

 

You cry one more tear

For the ones you’ll leave behind

You smile one more grin

As you reach for the knife.

 

Famished soul

You are finally full

As you kiss the world goodbye.
