I Cry Tonight

Neglected, I am  
So many times
No one considers my feelings
I cannot trust anyone any more
Disregarded, I am

Loneliness shoves me in a dark hole
Depression, it is
The world where I am lost
A world of burdensome feelings
Feelings that never end

I endure the cost of my life
A life I never asked for
I am not happy
I cry
                                                                 I do not always cry
For crying is not style
But I get days
Moments that stay

 Today, unfortunately
I can’t hold back my pain
So I cry tonight
Cry myself to sleep
As a way of letting go
The burdens that saddle me

Tomorrow I will rise
With a smile on my face
Because I am thankful
I still breathe
And I will celebrate my life
As an innocent and happy child
