One step to the left,
A sudden rush of wind forces my hair out of style.
Two steps to the right,
A scream towards my ear made me deaf for a while.
One step forward,
The whole earth shakes.
Two steps back,
Another cruel one takes,
One more part of me.

The things in this world...
They always take chunks and pieces of the living world.
It tears them apart until they refuse to continue living.


I was inspired to write this, because just recently, I had a strong sense to kill myself. The feeling was so strong that I had locked myself up in my room for 2 days, without coming out no matter how much my parents pleaded.

I was just so confused, and everything around me seemed to just fly by, blowing me into a different direction.
I felt as if I didn`t control my life, and in stead, everyone else around me did.

The next few days, I was in a deep depression state, not speaking, not looking up, and skipping classes.
Every day, I would come home to fighting and abuse.

Why do I even smile anymore?

we smile because we cant cry all the time. even if we cry for a year, we can smile next year.
