We fall down. We get up. We try to hold our head up when life pulls us apart. We fight and we bleed but all we ever need is something to hope for.

I am trapped
Walls of fear and pain surround me
I cannot break through
Every day is a struggle and a worry for what I will endure next
This is my life
These are my problems
I am an outsider, watching everything and everyone glide by
I cannot focus, my life is full of shadows
My fears are always lurking, always there and I wait in dread for what will come
I do not understand what happened
How did we get here?
How did I get here?
Why me?
Why my life and my opportunities?
I am lost
What has happened?
I cannot think of the past
The past was too perfect
I can only think of the future and wonder what will happen
Will the rest of my life be this horrible?
I know I am depressed, I live in fear, I live in pain
I am distraught
I do not know a way out
I have no options
I am stuck
No one is here
No one can help me
I put on a front for the few family and friends in my life
They can never know
I could not live with them knowing
I am already so scared
I do not know how much more I can take

The author's comments:
I wrote this at a time I was feeling very down and depressed in my life. I was scared and I was in pain. But thanks to some very special, wonderful and irreplaceable people in my life, I am better then ever now.
