Poetic Catharsis

Only

I seek answers
Only to find more questions
I seek truth
Only to find more lies
I seek resolution
Only to find more conflict

I’d ask you
Only I’m not sure you would answer
I’d fight harder
Only I don’t understand the war
I’d give up
Only the loss would be too great

I offer a hand
Only to have it slapped away
I offer to listen
Only to hear angry words
I offer my shoulder
Only to bear the weight of my own disappointment

Fini

A lovely poem, my child! I especially like the last two lines.

Why thank you. The last two lines truly summed up what I was/am feeling - such disappointment in people I thought I knew...

Very nice despite the heavy undertones. I've written my own cathartic piece this week, and it truly does help to put one's thoughts and emotions into words. Lovely.

Thanks, and you are so right - I always seem to turn to poetry when things aren't going well. I've no idea why it seems I think about these situations in verse?? Ah well, I'm usually happy with the results and that's something...
