Starting Over

Sometimes I feel my world is falling apart
Confusion was there from the start
Anger, grief and remorse filled my heart
I want to start over but don't know where to start
I am so depressed I don't know what to do
These feeling just won't let me be
They say nothing is wrong, but I hurt inside
My hope, my dreams lay at my feet
I want to cry, I don't care
My tears are all bottled up inside
If I start crying I won't be able to stop
My heart is heavy, my heart is breaking
So I hold all my feelings in
There is one thing I want to do
But starting over is hard to do
So I pray to God to carry me through
I know He is there
All I have to do is ask and believe
He will be by my side and never leave
So I will hang on to God's hand
Until my world is find again
It's tough to start over
This morning is a new day
A fresh start for me
I thank God for another chance
With his help I will start
To find serenity and peace within my heart.

An honest exploration of despair and hope. When you establish a rhyme scheme in a poem, your readers expect it to be sustained throughout the poem. You might want to eliminate the rhymes and re-visit this as a free verse. Also, in future challenges, remember to leave off your name. I love your last line!
