Hopeless

Poem By Jordan Jacobs

What’s the point?
What’s the use?

Why care?
Why dream?
Why hope?

Why get excited over something that could happen
Just to be let down when it doesn’t

Why plant your hopes with seeds of trees
That will just be chopped down

Why send your dreams to soar on wings of eagles
That will just be shot down or caged

Behind A Smile

Alone I cry, hiding it behind a laugh
Alone I remorse, hiding it behind a smile

My loneliness so deep it cuts into my soul

Mourning Mist

The shadow emerging from the morning mist
Raises inside of me a storm
Of anger and sadness
That swirls in me like a tornado

Light...Dark

The light fades to darkness
As I recede into the shadows

There to live. There to die

My Life

My life the Storm
The harsh cold
The unforgiving wind
The thunder that wakes me at night

Sadness

The light fades to darkness
As I recede into the shadows

I sit there remembering…….

The Real Me

Hidden inside of me is
A little boy curled in a ball
Crying
Hiding it behind a laugh
