drowning in the sea
wondering the questions-
used to think the road ahead is full of sunshine
now i read psychology books to calm my head in the bed
need someone tells me this is alright
-all are the tuitions have to pay in the early life
dreaming a philosopher in mind
the best cure is
-everything will be fine

The lights
are screaming,
"may the night
doesn't end."

We, too.
When we are
at our best,
we hope to
stay the same.

As the sun rises,
the lights say,
"I will be back."

We, too.
There'd always be dark days, what matters is how we get over those.
Nina McNally Dec 2019
Dream big,
And never give up!
Reality is hard,
Keep it real "in these

Dark Days"
And share the positive and light and
You never know, maybe,
Someday the world can see the light again!

Your shadow is the
Which appears on every
Dark day
Is that even possible??
We put hopes
Cause there's faith

We hold on to
Cause we trust one another

We stand up tall
Cause we believe in ourselves

Still somehow
There's a force

Tryna break us
Bring us down

Like it was so clear
Suddenly became so dark

So dark
That you can't see a thing
Even with your both eyes open

That's your call
To the new beginning
Pick yourself up
Look around you

There's a lot more to discover
There's more challenges coming your way

Keep on living
Keep on believing

One day
You'll win.
Stay strong love.

The edge of a blade
I prayed
For second chances
Until it happened to me
Unfortunate circumstances

The score setter,
Conviction letter,
The get good getter;
That hurting someone is
Gonna make me feel better.

This life that I live
Is a warrior’s craft
Hanging by life’s raft
Ninjas and samurais
Gang and clan ties.

You gotta hang me
Stand by me
You know, it’s hard.

Life’s near impossible
Whether life allows
Or disavows
These are my vows
For better or for worse,
Till death do us part.
Part me, part facade.
Am I a fraud?
I just don’t know.

Back to the future
Hover board
Sinking and drowning,
19 and counting.

Two sides of the same story
Anger and despair
Hope and peace
Broken pieces.
Broken heart,  
Shattered mind.

A life,
Destined for greatness…
Only to fall short
To slip up
And never get picked up.

Feeding memories,
Feeding thoughts,
Dreams killed,
Nightmares born.

Let me ask you a question:
Have you ever looked down…
The barrel of a gun?
To face death
In the midst of life;  

Shot down because
I just wasn’t
Good enough.

Not enough good luck.
Lucky number three.
Son, brother, outcast.
Shunned from reality’s past.
Friend, family, fake fronts,
Fighter, thinker, life stunts.

Angels telling me to stay, retreat.
Demons yelling at me to hit replay, repeat.
Me? Staring at a bedroom wall
Calling, pleading with God
To Control-Alt-Delete.

Life’s ******;
From what I foresee,
I’ve gotten third degree…

We’re told to
Have a fire.
A fire that never
Gets put out.

We’re told to
Reach for the stars,
And never give up.

Told to
Be bold and
To be brave.

Told to
Be the best and
Only the best.

Told that
We only…  
Live once.

But here I am,
Telling you to
Live and to last.

You see,
All my life,
I’ve had
Angels and demons
All around me.

This broken world;
It surrounds me.
But His grace;
It astounds me.

His peace covers me
Like the trust between lovers be
His Spirit hovers over me.

To live and to last,
To look to the future,
Embrace the present,
And accept the past.

Despite my darkest days,
God always provides
Now, here I hide;
In His brightest lights.
Tink Nov 2017
Where all pulls me down.
Where life is bittersweet.
Where my heart is aching
and I can't shake it off.

One of those days
where choices have a bitter taste
and secrets are a heavy burden,
slowing down my energy
for the sake of everyone involved.

One of those days
where nothing seems right
but anything else would be wrong.
Where I wanna shout and scream
and let it all out.
But choices are done
and out of my hand.
Secrets a burden to carry till the end

My heart is beating
My soul is screaming
My brain is overthinking
My body is shaking
My pencil is bleeding
The pain that my mouth couldn't enunciate
Couldn't enunciate those dark days
That i buried my soul with hopes
Falling into the despair
Looking for the key of success
While  i have forgotten that

I didn't finish
Carving it Yet
Sarah Ramlal Aug 2017
I'm trapped.
I can't breathe.
Losing hope,
I'm falling deep,
"I hope you stay,"
silently I pray.
My love for you,
won't lead me astray.
I need you now,
more than I can explain.
Just hold me close.
Promise me,
please promise me,
you won't disappear.
I'm fighting to stay,
fighting to love,
just hoping someone,
will help me up.
Losing my faith,
day by day.
Sometimes I don't,
believe that you'll stay.
My heart is broken,
pieces are gone.
My darkest days have,
taken my crown.
I no longer smile,
no longer laugh.
I'm trying to hold on,
with all my heart.
I hope you understand,
that I mean no harm.
It's just my darkest days,
have taken arm.
Trying to hurt us,
that's what they do.
My darkest days are
coming through.
