It's never to late, if it weren't for the last minute many things would never get done!


Too many problems,
all overwhelming me.
I can't think straight.
They tower over me
laughing at my uncertainty.
I just want to curl up and hide.
Live in a fairy-tale world,
where my problems won't trouble me.

But there is no such place
no happy ending
'till i get out there and face my problems,
instead of avoiding them.
I must be strong,
and live this life
of problems.

I feel the same. You can only run so far away.

Thanks! That's a reassuring thought, that I'm not alone, although sometimes even when you know others feel the way you do you still feel alone, or at least I do! :P

Completely relatable!  I feel like I can relate to all of your work.  You are not alone in these feelings.  Nice job with this, it flows very nicely.

the best things in life are always unseen
that's why we close our eyes when we
kiss, cry, and dream.

I completely relate to this poem and it's so good because it's so true!

I love this poem too! Ridiculously relatable.
