    a few weeks ago, we were talking about forums like this, and the support and encouragement it gives to us.

    my friend tony told me that in her life she's never had suicidal/ depressed feelings, and it got me to wondering.. wow.. what would life be like for people like that?

    having never had that experience, it turned in to a very interesting conversation- and eventually i wrote this poem about it

    enjoy

    what would life be like

    what would life be like?

    what would life be like

    if we didon't want to die

    if we had the motivation

    to stand our ground and fight

    if every minit of every day

    was filled with will to live

    we'd be happier in every way

    with so much love to give

    what would life be like

    if everyone felt great?

    life would be so beautiful

    we wouldn't want to waste

    any precious moment

    for our lives would be so fine

    but i have never been there,

    so i can't define

    what would life be like,

    with out suffering and war?

    we wouldn't hurt each other

    nothing to fight for

    what would life be like

    if everything was free

    life would be so beautiful

    i'm sure you'd all agree

    what would life be like,

    if depression did not exist?

    no one in the whole wide world

    had ever heard of this

    what would life be like

    if we could turn back time
    pretend it never happened

    no fear, no sadness, no crime

    as i said i've never been there

    i've never had that glance

    to find out what life is really like

    if i got that second chance

    but i can't switch back the clock

    though i wish i might

    have the chance to ask the question

    what would life be like

    A very interesting concept- and I applaud you lost and alone to write this piece because now as I lay here on my bed, I actually am thinking of what life would be like.
    A very great work that defoinitely deserves more views.
