In life, we are faced with losing our first loves and are best friends. We have to face the pain of losing our loved-ones to death. We live with our regrets of the mistakes we make in life.

How can you love and trust again when you have been hurt over and over again at a young age. How do you get past all this pain. This is reality.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems

Reality
Death, departure, walk away, walk out
Should I or should I not pout

Family and friends
Lovers and one-night stands

I have loved, lost and lived
How do I trust, how do I love again

I should move on, it's all in my past
But my pain remains, continues and lasts

This pain lingers in my heart, mind and soul
Damn it - why is this world so cold

How can I have faith in God and family
When people I love are taken from me

Where can I find true and loyal friends
I'm sick of the lies, fights and revenge

Hurt continuously, hurt at a young age
How do I love again with all of my rage

How do I get past all of this, show me a sign
So I can leave my sadness, pain and crying behind

    I love this poem. It really says exactly how I feel and with such emotion in the words. With everything I have been through it is just so hard to move on from the pain and the past, because no matter how long your life goes on the pain is still present in your mind and your heart. I have not read a poem before that I could relate to as much as this one. Keep writing!

    This is an amazing poem. I resintly Lost a close friend to me. It's been over two months and I still can't seem to let go. While all my other friends seem so fine laughing at school but then theres me with this fake face,fake smile,fake laugh. This poem exsplains how I feel so perfect. Who ever wrote this peom truly know's the hurt of a lost friend.

    i like the poem it touches me so much. the question WHY? a disastrous question that could be ask with regrets or none. i just cant understand why we discern SUFFERINGS and PAIN that really wounds our heart
