Am I Alone

I get a funny feeling,
it comes from deep inside.
I get all mad and angry,
wanting to go and hide.

My doctor calls it depression,
my dad says it's just me.
But the thoughts and feelings,
no one will ever be able to see.

Some say I'm psycho,
some say I'm just weird.
It's like I'm a different person,
and the old me just disappeared.

I get really edgy,
I want to commit suicide real bad.
Then I get a headache,
followed by feeling sad.

I wish I could get help,
I wish it would go away.
Maybe if I keep praying real hard,
it will some day.

My life is like this poem is. Scary, sad, madness, and I have no clue what to do. I know what's wrong, yet I don't know how to fix myself. I get mad, yell, and when my friends walk out, I am never to see them again. So many, they left, I try, but it is to no avail. It leaves me cold and lost. I know not how to change, but I need to, for I am falling into the madness know as "depression" and "loneliness"
