A Teenager's Life

More by this author
Everything is falling to pieces
I just don't know what to do
My life took a wrong turn somewhere
And I need it to renew

This is not where I belong
Depression by day, tears by night
Everything has gone wrong
And I don't know how to make it right

I can't talk to anyone
Afraid of what they will say
Everyone asks if I'm alright
So, I lie and say I'm okay

There is pain all the time
Suicidal thoughts racing through my head
I don't know how to deal with this
But I'm not sure I want to be dead.

I really like ths poem and i think every teen in the entire world can connect with it. And all us teens need to realize that it'll get better and that this is all just a phase

I understand and relate to this poem... and scares me to know that there are others out there feeling the pain and abandonment that i have felt for.... a long time. keep writing. this was a great visual for me. i enjoyed it... in a sad kind of way

I am in the same boat. If you read my work you'll get what I feel in my life. Depression, pain, silence, abandenment, lonely, cold, detached, and already dead. i understand that pain. I live with it every day.

I think you should talk to your parents, doctor, or have great writing skills so continue! What will make you happy is watching the cincinatti bengals.
