    This poem is from my high school days.... lol, long time ago... but I think a lot of you can probably relate so I thought I'd share it

    Do You Really Care?

    I find I talk but no one's there

    I open up to the lion's lair

    I can't describe what I feel inside

    Cuz no one cares enough, they all hide

    I try to write and still I stare

    On a blank page with nothing there

    It's bottled inside I know

    But I don't know how to let it go

    I'm scared to talk to ones I should

    Scared they'll say I never would

    That's all I hear come from them

    When all I want is a helping hand

    I try so hard and all I get

    Is a soothing pet

    I'm not a dog nor a cat

    Yet that's where my psyche's at

    You told me to be true to you

    You never said I should misconstrue

    The things I feel, the thoughts I know

    Yet here around the ferris wheel I go

    I know no harm is intended

    But somehow I feel the care is pretended

    I need someone that can show me

    How much they truly care for me

    i should show this to my family, who really need a wake up call and realise what's going on.

    heh...... thanks for sharing that

    yw... yea that was written back in the time when i couldn't get any friends or family members to listen to me... all i got for answers was "stop exaggerating" , "life isn't that bad" , "grow thicker skin", etc...

    Hey DD that's a message from within
    I feel that way about my kin
    A dream of a life and shares
    But I search in vain for someone that cares

    Awful and shouldn't even be on the same page as your writings :)

    i thought that was a very good short poem, especially spur of the moment.. and it relates, so i'm glad you posted it here... just sorry that you can relate so well

    Ahhh thanks, big smiles here.

    In one way it is good we can relate because we'd be in a dire state if not one soul understood what was going on in that place between our ears.

    You'll have to tell me how you added that - don't tell anyone I worked in IT :)

    Chat anytime as I'm a sucker for anyone across the pond
