Favorite Quote:
Affliction is a good man's shining time -Edward Young

I am empty
Because I choose to be.
I feel nothing
Because my soul's erupting.
My hope is gone
Because all that I do is wrong.
I am alone
Because this house is not a home.

I have fallen
Because I can't keep crawling.
I'm in denial
Because Life is so vile.
I am missing
Because no one is listening.
I am you
Because you are broken too.

The author's comments:
This was my attempt to verbalize that rut of depression that people our age sometimes fall into due to... everything that goes on at our age (paired with our only partially developed coping skills). It's also my attempt to let the reader know that you are never alone, no matter what you're going through.
