Depression

I scream but there's no sound,
I cry but there's no tears,
Is this life,
Or am i isolated with emotion.

No one is listening,
I dont think anyone cares,
Is this life,
Or hell with normal people.

I try to act normal,
But no one know's the thoughts inside my head,
My so called life,
Filled with thoughts of being better off dead.

    Ah! Stephan:
    So sad. Even in Ireland that transition to adulthood is fraught with such painful struggle. Of course, the answer is to find something constructive that will completely absorb your whole being and interest. Something that will prove your prowess as an adult. So that you don’t see time stretching ahead and before you know it you will be there and you will like the person you have become. Best of all others will also.

    I have been there Stephan and found writing to be helpful in settling the racing mind that only those of us who have experienced it understand. A beautiful piece straight from the heart. Keep writing my friend. You've got what it takes.10+++

    Feeling sad, and you want to release yourself through tears and nothing is happening, nothing. Touching.

    This is beautiful! I mean you're talking about something sad, but I've been there and I never thought of saying it like this. I just love how you say it. *faved*

    wow! i know that feeling well enough. you have to dig deeper than your soul will let you and grab hold of that strength and use it. Once you dig that deep there is no comming back. Once you break that barrier you will continue to do deeper. Deeper than an abyss in space. Stay Strong!

    I know what you mean it feels like ur the only one but hun your not. Keep writing it helps a little, no matter what people say keep writing. If they don't like it or understand they don't have to read it. If you ever want to talk email me.
