Sad Peom © By Krystal M. Garcia

I remember a type of quote people used to say
But I never really understood it 'til today

Life will only get harder from here
I think about that almost every time I shed a tear

I look back on the happy years I once had
And I wish for them to come back Oh so bad

Pressure is a big part of teenage lives today
Temptations of sex, drugs, and violence never seem to go away

You never really know which road to choose
It seems which ever way you go, your bound to lose

Happiness eventually falls on your lap
Only to look once more and see it gone in a snap

Why does it seem I can't smile like before?
As if the joyous part of me walked right out the door

I never show my true feelings which is why I'm writing this poem
I guess my feelings are personal to me and I'm too embarrassed to show 'em

One day I'll find happiness again
I just have to live my life until then

And while I'm waiting just for that
I think I'll give myself a pat on the back

'Cuz I've come this far without giving up completely
I'm trying to enjoy life, it's very difficult, believe me

I guess that's the message I'm trying to send out
To keep your head up when giving up is what your thinkin 'bout

Take life's punches right in the face
And you'll see things will come to you at there own pace!!!
