Poem About Holding In Pain

This is dedicated to all the young people struggling to feel something other than emptiness or pain.

Wanting To Feel Something

© Joyce Alcantara
Have you ever held in pain to the point where it seemed like you didn't care?
You could've sworn you were crying,
But when you went to wipe tears away there was nothing there?
Going through life empty,
Just letting the world pass you by.
Numb to any feelings,
Just wishing you could die.
See I feel like this daily.
So lost I don't know what to feel.
When in fact I do feel pain, I can't believe that it's real.
So as I lay my head down tonight,
I close my eyes and pray.
I pray that God will give me guidance and to maybe feel someday.

    I felt this way before, to the point where I though I should just die so I wouldn't feel the pain any more but then I though it over, I have 8 brothers and sisters and I think they would like to see me alive and then I got too much to live for
    it's good to know I'm not alone☻☺♥
