Why do I feel so sad,
I hate it when I feel so bad,
Suffering with pain deep down,
Like a coil waiting to be unwound.

I can’t sleep at night,
To help me feel bright,
The days are cold and wet,
Like my mood just yet.

I want to wake up to sunshine,
And to know happiness in mine,
Instead each day is forever dark,
The silent pain makes its mark.

I feel so much despair inside,
That I want to free with my might,
Wanting to scream and shout,
Wanting to get the despair out.

I know I need to talk,
To hold my head high when I walk,
To find that sense of peace again,
And to know that I am on the mend.


About Philippa

I am married to Rick and we live in a small town in County Durham. We have two dogs, a cat and two budgies. I am also an adoption survivor. In 1981 my son was born and I was then forced to surrender him. It took 23 years and reunion for my to find out that my son's adoption was legally known as a forced adoption and illegal but social workers got away with it because mothers didn't know their rights.
