On The Other Side For A Change

Do you ever feel unloved?
Do you feel trapped?
Like your lost in a game,
and you can't get back?
Do you feel that you hide yourself
behind a mask?
So no one can see the happiness you lack?
Do you feel hopeless?
Weak?
Scared?
Are you waiting for a sign?
Or for someone to finally be there?
Be there to hold you?
To help you?
To love?
Are you looking for your angle?
Someone from above?
Are you about to give up?
To end your life?
Or will you stay tough
and fight?
Fight for your family?
for your friends?
Those that you love?
Could you really leave them?
Could you put yourself in their shoes?
What would you think?
What would you feel?
If someone you loved killed them self?
Imagine your reoccurring thoughts,
"they could have been helped"
So can you be helped?
Will someone listen to you?
Maybe things would be better,
if others knew.

My sister has deppression and actually attempted to kill herself I realized how badly it effected me, and I wrote this poem as a different view then I normally have, showing a glimpse of how others may feel.

I think the questions are the best part of the poem, they may you think.

I honestly don't like this poem. I hate all the questions in it :/
