Are you truly complaining?
Is your life so bad/difficult/saddening,
That you would rather deface yourself than look into the sunlight?
Has what you’ve suffered been so terrible/dark/depressing
That you refuse to smile?
Have you realized you are not alone/unaided/isolated,
In the sense that someone else is worse off?
Have you ever heard of genocide/homicide/slavery?
Do those terms apply to you?
Are you truly complaining/criticizing/brooding?
Well, are you?

I was inspired to write this piece because I am tired of brooding and deeply depressed teen literature...that includes you Twilight!
