The Deeper The Cut

You’re hurt. You’re broken.
Don’t know what to do.

You’re scared. Feel alone.
No one to turn to.

I know how it feels. Must hurt before you heal.
The deeper the cut goes, the more pain you feel.

Darkest before dawn. How much this is true!
Tough times don’t last, but tough people do.

Rest if you must. Rise from your mistake.
It’s ok to bend, but please, don’t you break.

You’ve been here before. So why be afraid?
Believe in yourself. Resurrect which is dead.

Hold up your head. Spread your wings and soar.
You’re definitely a fighter. Let them hear you roar!

I know that you’re tired. You’re feeling so alone.
The end of your rope? Well tie a knot and hold on.

I know how it feels. Must hurt before you heal.
The deeper the cut goes, the more pain you feel.

    the message is great, reminds me a lot of I walk beside you by Dream Theater.. perhaps you’d like the song.. also, the flow was brilliant, which is always to be expected from your work… beautiful stuff here! 🙂

    • Hmm, never heard of that song, I’ll check it out. Thank you for the compliments, appreciate it!

        the song does have something cheesy in it, but it doesn’t mean it’s not good xD

      • Yea, I’m listening to it now. Got my earplugs on jamming.lol

  2. I loved your use of “expressions” in this piece.

    This one being my favorite;
    “The deeper the cut goes, the more pain you feel.”

    So much truth!

    Brilliant..

    • Thank you Rome, I wrote this at a time some friends were going through some stuff and something I said to one of them sparked off this poem. The deeper the cut, the more it takes to heal and to get over things. Good looking out.

  3. This piece is filled with nothing but truths… powerful write, my friend. Your signature style only adds to this piece’s density in all the right ways. Brilliant indeed!
