    Three or so years ago was when I started feeling alone and depressed. I took up writing during the times when I just needed to get things out. In a way it became my form of venting, which I guess I should be grateful that I chose that instead of something more harmful to myself. Anyways, this poem was the first one that I ever wrote, so I thought it might be a good one to share. Enjoy :)

    Forgotten

    To be forgotten,
    is to be misunderstood.
    When no one listens to what you say,
    why bother speaking up?
    When you know something can never be,
    why try?
    When no one notices,
    you are forgotten.
    Now a shadow in everyone’s life.
    Stepped on.
    Looked over.
    Unnoticed.
    Forgotten.

    Wow this is really great wording! Keep it up! I felt the full force of what you are feeling in this. Please know that you matter and that there is someone who does care no matter what you feel. Never give up hope. :hug: Blessings..

    Thanks for reading it. Sometimes I don't know what I would've done had I not taken up writing my feelings out. Most of the ones I write aren't very good or make a lot of sense, but anything beats bottling the emotions up I say. :)

    I'll post more of them eventually, but I'll leave it at just this one for now.
