A Troubled Mind

A Troubled Mind


In fleeting captured glimpses, my memories collide

If only I could heal one before it’s forced aside

The constant pounding of the war that rages in my mind

Has left me weak and without hope, that there will come a time

That finished thoughts and kinder dreams will someday take their place

I long to know of sanity and pray for better days

In futile effort to be heard the newest thought is lost

Another forces it aside, without concern for cost

My cries for help are silenced, by those who turn their back

And any merits I might have they judge for what they lack

Still I remain a prisoner, a troubled mind in chains

Behind this wall of sadness my broken heart remains

Nowhere to turn except within, alone I face each day

To fight the inner demons holding sanity at bay

This battle for survival, takes all I have to give

The only thing protecting me has been my will to live

Somewhere inside me hides the hope that that time will be the cure

And somewhere in my troubled mind, hope struggles to endure

At times we all fight negative thoughts and our inner demons,but the greatest weapons against them are a strong faith and the desire to try to maintain a positive attitude.This is an excellent poem with vivid imagery,strong emotions and wonderfully expressive wording.Nicely done.

I enjoyed the expressive words of deep meaning to your poem. A broken heart is hard to mend, time will heal but scars remain. Great!

PRober commented on A Troubled Mind


Excellent, I can surely relate... you decribed life's struggles and the hope in fate! Thanks, and good job!

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
