I WAS BLIND N DID NOT SEE

What do you say….When it’s all been said….
What do you feel….When inside you're dead….


                          Where do you go….When you get lost along the way….
                         Where is the courage….When you're scared everyday….


When do you just give in….When your world slowly shatters
When do you walk away….When you realize it no longer matters


                      
Who do you turn to….When you've closed all the doors….
                         Who will pick you up….When you're broken on the floor….


Why all the pain….When you choose to be alone….
Why sit all nite….When you know no one will phone….


                     How is life worth it….When it all seems so unfair….
                   How do you ask for help….When you think no one cares….

We have all been blind and let someone maybe ourselves down. But the cost of our mistakes was to high and we can not forgive ourselves. I know it happen to me and I lost at least 10 years of my life. Your words summed it all up great poem!
