Wasted (National Poetry Writing Month 2015 #7)   Leave a comment

I’ve wasted time crying,
Wasted time giving up.
Wasted time with indecision,
With not trying hard enough.

I’ve wasted time with hatred
I’ve wasted time with fear
Wasted time with anger,
Wasted so many of my years.

I’m tired of being wasted
Tired of being stoned.
Of waking up with doubt and regret.
I’m tired of being alone.

So I’m trying to make it better.
I’m trying to make it right.
I’m trying to keep on fighting
To one day have a better life.

I don’t know if I can make it
I don’t know if I’ll ever win.
I don’t if this is worthwhile
But I’ll try, again and again.
