Earth or Hell?

Post by Holleh on Sat Aug 14, 2010 4:50 am

So... I've been going through some stuff lately, and as any poet would, I turn my pain into words, and those words into poetry. Fun, right? Anyway, I was just sitting here, bored, and I let the words flow. The poem itself isn't all that great, I am aware, but the message it's supposed to send has deep meaning. I wrote this off the top of my head, so, yeah. Suggestions are welcome, however, though it's just something I wrote for the heck of it and decided to share. So, without further ado, here is the poem. It is a tad on the darker side, so if that stuff bothers you, don't read it, please.

________________________________________________

The shadows grow tempting
And suddenly,
The empty, dark lands
Of nothingness
Seem more like a paradise
Than this life
Led on by false hopes
And returning disappointment
To live in sadness;
Is it truly worth it?
When the misery’s end
Is nowhere in sight
Why take more chances?
To end it all is simple
Whether with a blade,
A bullet,
Or a container of pills
We could use that one chance
And end the pain, the sadness
The misery, and regret
We could slip away from this world
And enter deep slumber
Where nothing can ever harm us again
Despite these options
We still look forward
Awaiting something good to happen
To turn the tide around
To fade away
Our tear-stained faces
To light the dark tunnel
We stumble through
Everyday
For we know
If we surrender
That others will be engulfed
In the agony
And resort to the same escape
That, to us,
Was so blissful,
But we do not wish it for them
For they are the ones with hope
The illuminating light
In the hallows of darkness
That consume this world
And make us question
Whether we’re in
Earth or Hell

Oh my, that is rather dismal.
Don't do any of those things, kay? kay.

As a poem though, I like it.
"Awaiting for something good to happen" should be "Awaiting something" or "Waiting for something" -- just noticed that. ;)
