Be still Poetry Collection

I prayed and prayed.

The pain wouldn’t go away.

Why anyone would sign up for this I don’t know to this day.

I kept making the same mistake.

I prayed for them to go away.

But I face them again.

I’m tired of being at their feet.

I’m tired of feeling like I’m the one who doesn’t deserve

I don’t deserve anything that’s all mine

They come inside and take things.

Mostly they take my self-esteem.

But I keep praying because it’s the only thing

that keeps me here

It’s the only thing that will make me feel like I have a chance

Even though this nightmare started before I had my breath

And it seems like it will last throughout this life and the next.

This is one of my poems. Check out my new poetry collection Be Still here.
