About the Poem

This is a poem I wrote pertaining to what I knew would happen if I really did talk to this certain person about what's happening to me.


I stared past my preacher
as he lectured me,
tears poured down my face
I knew what this was
I needed no lecturing
I only came to him for help
all I needed was moral support
I looked into his face
I knew what he was saying,
(the same as everyone else)
though I heard no words
I only cried harder
I understand everything
I don't need people to tell me what's wrong
he seemed to be my last resort
he was the only person I had left to turn to
and he had failed

now what?

Oh, I give this 5 stars
I was deeply saddened by this poem. I am sorry that you feel these feelings. I knew that I wasnt the only one, I've just never met another who had the same feeling of aloneness that I had. Beautiful work!
i am having a really crappy day something has triggered me off im ment to be doing work in class but all i find myself doing is reading poems and this one is amazing really it is the bit where you said you were my last resort and you failed really touched home its nice to know that someone else can relate to whats happening and put it in words thankyou very very much annabelle

yours is great. when we have no one, still there is God who will continue watch us over
This poem was really pure. It showed how people like me turn to the last person and they let them down. I loved this poem because it describes me, while I can't write poetry. Thank you for writing this poem and showing all people that life isn't like a fairy tale- always having a happy ending.
i liked this poem 'cuz it kinda shows how i feel,when you try to talk to the right person but it doesn't work out the way you wanted and then you feel lost.
I loved it Ya see i just lost my grandpa this morning at 4:30am And i'm pretty lost and it made me feel like I was'nt alone like there was more people out there ya kno. I'm a 17 yr old and I feel just as lost as what the poem expresses Thanks for allowing me to read on

Hey! I just wanted to tell you that I absolutly loved your poem, that is the way I feel everyday of my life, like there is no one left to turn to. Well thanxs for sharen!
This poem was not meant to be beautiful,or good. It was a message of feelings and it was well thought. I like the poem on the scense that i do as well understand what the pastor is saying but I choose not to listen so I feel he has failed me. I'm glad that I'm not the only one.
larisa..good poem, there is someone else to turn to, here's a hint.he's been with you all along

I give this poem a 10. I thought it was just beautiful. It touched home is some sense. Thank you for sharing.
