Difficult Times


I feel so depressed and all so alone,
So many thoughts in my head,
I’m telling you now I sometimes wish,
That I would actually wake up dead.
That would solve all my problems,
And surely stop all this pain,
If I don’t do something quick,
I’m bound to go insane.
Why does nobody listen?
Does anyone even care?
I feel as though no-one would notice,
If one day I just wasn’t there,
No-one understands me,
And no-one truly knows,
That this deadening pain inside me,
Continues to grow and grow...

    Writing out thoughts down can sometimes help us deal with difficult feelings and thoughts. We've all felt like we wish were dead sometimes but then we'd miss out on the fun and adventure of living. I do hope you write your way out of this, you have the talent to put down what you're thinking, which is great. Wishing you a tremendous Thursday. HG: -) xx (Report) Reply

    That we are reading your words means that you're not alone. So no worries! Please don't wake up dead, it makes breakfast REALLY awkward. Take care of yourself. S x (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem, Gemma - I guess we've all felt like that sometimes. It gets better, though, you know (hopefully it has already!)
