Poetry: Sadness

My mind is open to sadness
For past and future events
The reality is likely to cause madness
To which I will not present

To each I cannot control
The means to be seen in such a negative light
That hurts and destroys my soul
And ceases me to be forthright

For those that struggle like me
Whose heart thirsts for love and understanding
I so empathize to an enormous degree
And pray there is no crash landing

I want only to live in happiness
To love, be loved and learn
My craving for knowledge will lead to greater articulateness
And the ability to cope with situations of no concern.
