Final Plea

This is my cerebral turned cyber
Prayer in a status.
A final plea.
I hope they see.
I’m drowning in this sea.
I need someone to reach
And try to save me.
I’m trying just to be.
Despite all of my misery.
I’m so young,
It’s not fair.
I feel like nobody cares.
Sometimes waking up and breathing is too much to bear
I’ve been losing this game
For quite a while.
I feel like a worthless Joker
Placed in the discard pile.
I’ve been through the fire, and I’ve been left charred.
Sometimes I wonder if life was meant to be this hard.
I’m teeter tottering on a line just short of being placed in a psych ward.
But I hold onto the hope my joy will one day be restored.

This is a piece I'm still working on...not sure if it's finished yet. It is written with someone in mind, but I think giving a back story would give away who it is. Sometimes human beings are born into unimaginable circumstances, but more often then not they find strength to keep going. I hope this gives someone hope. Please keep in mind, that I view my poetry as art. I am not suicidal, but it is dedicated to a dear friend who presently is at times. Some problems in life are just uphill journeys and long battles, but you can come out on top.

Interesting... and very good! It does really portray that emotion you were going for... we need to talk, and catch up, but I have a friend going through this as well.
