The Only Way Out - Poem by BARBARA ALVARADO

If you didn't know me, we just met
In me you would see smiles, laughter, joking, happiness all around.
No one sees the hurt in me
It is hidden, don't let it be found.
My deep dark feelings I keep to myself. Behind the smiles and laughter until now.
Im a truly depressed person with thoughts of death running thru my mind.
Yes I did try to take my own life several times.
Sleep is my only happy place.
I am Lonely
YWhen I am awake.not a day goes by with thoughts of suicide on my mind.
But I know there is a reason for me being here today
Maybe to write this for people can understand.
When suicide takes over our mind, thoughts of happiness is waiting on the other is not our fault we feel this way
And please don't turn your head take a walk in our shoes instead. then maybe you will see, its not so fun living a life like me.
RIP Henry J Besida
We miss you so....
