Poem: Holding Back the Tears

Poem: Holding Back the Tears

The voices,

warnings,

temptations,

and the consequences.

Oh,

how it feels

to be in despair.

Everything seems

to go awry.

You’re left

frustrated,

nauseated,

and defeated.

You want to

scream,

cry,

punch out the wall,

and die.

But,

you can’t

give in

that easily

to the downturns in life.

Fight

for your sanity

and remain

a part of humanity.

You’re holding

back the tears

and conquering your fears.

You must go on.

It’s your destiny

to rise and succeed.
