The day seems good until you wake up.
The world seems welcoming until you enter it.
When the morning comes, nothing seems good.
The moment my eyes open and until they are shut
I feel like death would be better, safer, and more peaceful.
But the moment my eyes are closed, dreams come and take me.
The dream of peace and happiness, the warmth and love.
It may only last a moment, but it gives me strength,
Strength for the day to come.
No matter what it be, a nightmare or a fantasy,
It seems better than life.
Friends in my dreams never leave or change.
Time never passes too fast or too slow.
You are never forgotten or hated.
Nothing seems better, and you start to feel happy.
Then the sun comes up and you're brought back,
Back to the truth of the world.
The pain and sadness,
The hate and fear of life washes over you
And you wish you wouldn't have opened your eyes.
You want to fall back into your welcoming sleep
Where nothing goes wrong and you are always loved.

Stay in your bed. Sleeping and dreaming can be better than facing the world and connecting with it. In dreams, everything is good and nothing is wrong, just happiness and no fear or sadness. This is how my life goes on. I wish all my dreams come true. I wish I could find my happiness in this world. I wish I could stop crying one day. I need someone now to hold my hand and take me away because I am very sad.

Yeah you are all right. It's the truth, I wish to die now, not tomorrow now. Sometimes my dreams make me feel better but when I wake up I know that I can't make my life nice and peaceful. I am always sad, alone actually. I don't have more to say, only when you will look to my eyes you will see how much I am a sad girl .

Hang in there, I also share your pain of life where all seems to go wrong and the pain and emotions just keep growing. But it can all change, I know you probably hear this a lot but all you gotta do is get into life, Grab it by the balls and do stuff you would never do before, like martial art classes or sports or exploring on your own. Don't close your world just yet there is still so much to do even if your out of your teen years. Live on Sister.
