I lost hope

As well as love.

I lost myself saving other selves,

And they didn’t even care.

Pain and hatred were planted

In my heart.

When I first lost her,

It wasn’t easy

But I surpassed it.

No one was with me

When gallons of salty water

Soaked my pillow.

They gave me names

But I knew who I am.

They called me a fool

But I kept the faith

And continued hanging on.

I lived life

And left problems.
