Poem I made up years ago

I am fed up of all this hurt

I lay here tearful wondering

Why life won't give me a break

Do I actually deserve all this

One thing after another

It never goes away

All I want is to be free of

This pain and tiredness

Everyone has to suffer me

But why should they

I wish people would understand the pain I'm in

I want to be happy and full of life

But I can't see I ever will

Things will never change.

At least in bed I can sleep

And not feel the pain

Until another day begins

and it starts all over again

What joy

What a life

Can I say I was feeling really down when I wrote that, did two others two, didn't know I had it in me. Not so down now and not been for ages but my pain is getting worse now and getting fed up with it and it made me think of these poems. Hope it doesn't depress anyone. Just wanted to share it.
