What Am I Doing Here? - Poem by Katie Huntress

what am i doing here?
why do people care?
its not like i am worth anything,
i can't do anything except write,
and most of them are depressing,
they just make people sad,
what am i doing here,
it seems people just want me here to make me unhappy,
their is nothing i need here,
nothing i want, nothing i can get,
so why don't they just let me die,
it will stop the worrying,
people can just get back to their lives,
so just let me go.

    Very emotionally charged poem Katie. I think the questions in your poem are ones we have all asked ourselves at some time or another in our lives.

    Why you are here, is because you are a poet and this is a perfect poet community. We understand eachother you see! And we all suffer the turmoil of living on this planet. What you have to try and remember is that, writing is very healing and, depression is a fluctuating thing. It always passes. Just keep writing. If your age is correct? you have a talent that will take you far, if you allow it. Smiling at you, sending you my best. 10 from me Tai

    I think the fact that you ask these questions shows that you do care Katie. And you do want more. It's up to you to go get it. I wish I could send you strength through this stupid computer! ! Keep fighting. You are in my prayers Katie. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
