Sad Poem by Teens

I'm 14. I feel so lost. I've done things to myself that I probably shouldn't have... :/ And the thing is. compared to so many other people, I know I have nothing wrong in my life. But I hate myself, and the one person that I thought would always be there for me...has left. And I'm more alone then ever.

I deeply feel the same way you guys feel. It’s because I feel this way every day. For the past 6 years, I have looked over my shoulders just to see people stare me down and make me feel...

Fake A Smile

Published: March 2014

Everyday I see people
On the news
Having been bullied
Or are alone and abused
I know that their lives
Leave them so sad
Or maybe just tired
Lonesome
Mad
And I know next to them
With all of their life problems
I have nothing to complain about
So I must have no sorrow
But if that is so
Why do I feel so empty
Like someone has left
Left me only a penny
But if that is so
Why do I feel so lost
Traveling in circles
To big of a cost
And if that is so
Why am I so depressed
I feel like life's not worth living for
I don't know what comes next
Then I ask myself
"What happens now?"
Fake a smile
Find a way down

I deeply feel the same way you guys feel. It’s because I feel this way every day. For the past 6 years, I have looked over my shoulders just to see people stare me down and make me feel degraded. Still, every day I put a smile on my face knowing it would never stick…never be true and genuine. It got so bad once I had to be hospitalized at a mental hospital at the age of 14. Unfortunately, depression isn’t just a form of an emotion…it sometimes is a solid cause of death. You will heal when you finally realize that you are worth it and that you are who you are and that’s all there is to it.

I know exactly how you feel. I wish there were people in my life that would always be there for me, but they have left. I do stupid things, but that doesn't mean that I'm a horrible person. If you don't like me, then don't like me.

I know exactly how you feel, like you should tell someone what you're going through but scared they will call you an attention seeker. I look at others and I say to myself that I shouldn't be that sad, but I am and I can't help but feel this way anymore.. like an addiction
