"A day without laughter is a day wasted" -Charlie Chaplin


My heart is empty
I feel absolutely nothing
The longing I had has come and gone
And yet it is still here

My mind is broken
So torn to pieces
Shattered like broken glass
And yet still whole

My body is aching
Stress filling the caverns inside
Boiling until the anger overpowers all else
And yet I am calm

I am still me
No matter what the new day may bring
Or what the past has already brought
Good things will come, and I will still be here

This was a day that absolutely nothing had gone right. My friends were teasing me, I had had tons of homework. I just wanted to crawl up into a little ball, away from the rest of the world.
