Hurting Poem by Teens

I wrote this poem when I was depressed. I often write poems to express my feelings.

I know how you feel. I'm sorry you feel like that because I know what you're going through. I'm trying to become better myself. People don't understand EMO'S like myself...

Broken Dreams

Drowning in a darkness
Of deep despair
Believing the lies I hear
And seeing truths not there

See the rays of sunlight
They shine upon your scars
Reaching for that broken smile
Among the hidden stars

Hearing the tear drops
Falling from your eyes
Believe my hidden secrets
And tell my stolen lies

Bring me to the surface
Give me air to breathe
Let me see the sorrow
Upon my broken dreams

I have suffered from depression for years and when I got busted (weed) I was taken to a psychologist and was diagnosed with depression anxiety and sleep deprivation but when I was sent to a place for troubled teens I met some of the best people in my life. 1. Ryan hart. he was diagnosed with cancer about 4 years ago and seeing how he kept his head up everyday eventually made me love him (like a father) and after one of the many nights I wasn't sleeping about 2 in the morning I saw something that made me feel like it was going to be okay... he had beat the leukemia. That night I slept without my pills and cried for the first time without wanting to slit my wrists. My name is Mabel and I'm still not happy but that's the biggest burden off my back.

This is beautiful. I love how you describe everything you're going through. I feel the same way ever single day. It's difficult because sometimes it seems like no one even cares. Stay strong, please. I'm struggling too, but I know I'm not alone. Don't feel alone, okay? I'm here for you.

When I read this I cried because I loved it, it showed exactly how I feel every day struggling every day to Ignore the lies I have been told, and I believe those lies that had been told over and over.

I thought I was the only one suffering pain because I've been bullied all my life called gay and stuff like that. I've just come to this my parents don't understand why I get mad at them and they got me a counselor which has helped.

I love this very much. It made me realize that I wasn't the only one hurting out here. I used to feel like it was just me going through this and that no one else knew how I felt. Thank You so very much for publishing this.

Wow, this is an amazing poem. I'm 13 and I've been cutting for 2 years.. I'm not proud of it, and it seems like I can't stop. I'm afraid of rehab and being alone. Meanwhile, I want to be alone. Thanks for making me feel like I'm not the only one like that. This also goes out to the other comments...

This is amazing this explains me. I am 15 I cut and I understand this is everything. A series of broken dreams, pain, and nights I wish I could forget. This is everything. You and Me we are the same people. Where have you been all my life I have tried to explain who I am and what I have done. I am classified as emo at school. But dreams and ash are the same thing where I come from. Finally someone understands. Finally I am not alone.

People always think that this is all a joke. We are emotional people expressing our feelings god dammit and it's sad to see that nobody gets it...

I think this is so amazing.
I'm 15 and I write poetry everyday, mainly sad ones like this.
I feel inspired by this poem and when I read it I feel like I understand not just your feelings, but I understand myself as well.
thanks for making my day. :)

I love this poem. It's the most beautiful thing I've heard for someone like me, a cutter. I DO feel as if darkness is trying to drown me, sometimes it gets far enough to completely kill my happiness. I also feel like the sun is trying to kill the darkness that lingers in my soul. Sometimes it gets as far as giving me a smile and a light heart.
