Oh, Yes...

I went out asking for rain
But no rain...
I felt bad… and collapsed
I lay curled
People passing by thought I was drunk...

Oh, Yes...

I talked with people
People who had no understanding
People who I hate now
Who I wish would drop dead
Who, may be someday,
I will end, finish!
Oh yes!
I went out asking for rain
So I could cry
Crying helps.
But no rain and heat pressed further.
Then I smoked… first time
I felt bad… and collapsed.
I threw up
I lay curled
People passing by thought I was drunk
Like I thought when I was passing by a drunk
Feeling pity or hatred
Cursing and cursing
“Why he drank in the first place,
Knowing the consequences.”
Never stopping to think
“Maybe he had a problem
And couldn’t stand it.”
I raised my head against the sky
I opened my mouth
To cry
“Take my soul, God,
I want to die”
But I couldn’t.
Not yet.
I have to live
There’re people who’ll suffer
If I die.
My mom…
My dad…
I have to live
Oh yes, I will.

That is a nice pice of work dear Bizning !
There’re people who’ll suffer
If I die.
My mom…
My dad…
I have to live
Oh yes, I will.

These lines at the end shows all your urge to live even with immense frustration why it didn't rain! Nice one!

Failure after failure, I found myself in back in 2007 during the 8 months. That was when I wrote this poem. I'm glad that I had written it, because every time, I read it, I think of those hard times. Otherwise, I probably would not be remembering those hard times as often as I do.
