A life with no meaning

a poem by Stephanie Riley

Persistently enduring,
The pain within,
Futile corpse,
Full of sin,
Corrupt soul,
Mind blank,
Heart coal,
Love sank,
Constant hate,
Lots of rage,
How can one keep up at this rate?
Shaking with anger,
Too selfish for tears,
Can’t afford to look in the mirror,
One day it will come,
When I least expect,
A life that I no longer will neglect.
