A Poem I Wrote


I wrote this while I was in high school.

"Angel"

My life, in broken pieces and shattered dreams
Is swept to the side by those around me

I am swimming in murky darkness
Where there is no up

I am drowning in lies and depression
I open my eyes and see corruption
I open my mouth to breath in light and truth
But only hate and spite fill my lungs

I go to scream but nothing sounds

My salty tears rush down my face
And add to the darkness around me

I pray to be saved
I pray to be freed
From my chains of darkness

When I feel the end draw near
I struggle to be saved

I pray to the angels to save me

I see the light above me
At the surface of my despair

I swim to save myself

I realize no angel came for me
I realize I saved myself

As I breathe truth and love in

I know
I see, I am my own angel
