I Bleed To Give You Hope (Poem)

Even after I’m gone,
My words will live on
In the hearts and minds
Of you the reader
I may not live forever
But my words surely will
And that’s the point
Of this, my endeavor
I’ve spilled my blood
First, through experience
Second, because I write
So that you won’t have to suffer
As I have done for you
Now twice

One day a poem formed in my mind, it happened as a result of an experience I was going though. So I wrote it down and haven’t stopped writing since.

I’m not skilled in grammar and punctuation or even spelling, but I do have a gift for translating my feelings, thoughts and emotions into words, that people can relate to.

My motivation for writing comes from a deeply rooted desire I have to encourage and motivate people.

I know the loneliness, that darkness that leads a person to contemplating suicide, that was once me. I had no one that understood the pain, agony and darkness I was going through.

And that is why I write and share publicly, in hope that I might encourage another human soul needing desperately to hear, “There’s hope, you’re not alone in your struggle”.

I haven’t figured out everything, but what I have figured out I write about, and sometimes I bleed words turning them into poetry.
