    I wrote this when feeling really depressed. I'm not sure if it's about me or the idea of depression.


    what you never wanted has become reality.
    the dark black hole has swallowed you, and you can’t get out.
    you’re running from help, dodging reality.
    and all the time, you wish it were gone.

    you sit alone, not wanting to move.
    you avoid your friends and family.
    you cry a lot, for the end of innocence.
    you wonder why it was you and not somebody else.
    the thing is, you’re not alone.

    the mother
    the brother
    the father
    the sister
    the aunt
    the uncle
    the friend
    the teacher
    the son
    the daughter

    they all understand, and they all suffer. they are all like you, you’re not alone.

    Wow, not bad. You said you wanted to be a writer?

    Yep, I'm gonna be a writer. Just not a journalist. I'm taking journalism, but I hate the idea of prying into people's lives.

    Daredhead, beautiful poem, speaks of the truth - you/we are not alone. However it always feels like it's just us having these problems.. crazy world we live in !

    Peace to you,
