I've lost hope lost my faith I got none left
I only hope that when tomorrow comes it'll bring death

There's no love in my life no love in my household
This act is starting to get real old

Man its so cold when you in bed alone
Wishing someone was laying next to you, but there is none

There's nobody there nothing but darkness
No one to touch, hug, or kiss

If you cant look forward to tomorrow what's the point of today
I want to leave this earth, but something making me stay

Some kind of force is keeping from leaving this earth
The angel of death has been breathing down my neck since birth

and these voices in my head are getting to loud to ignore
What did I do lord? why you gotta do this for

Why cant you jus let me be leave me in peace
All this hatred and sorrow is turning me into a beast

I hate what I've become, did god save me as a child?
Or was that the devil the one that answered when I dialed

For a prayer as I laid in the hospital bed
Why did I survive sometimes I wish I had died instead

Of surviving it why did I live why didn't I pass on to the next life why
Do I go to bed every night with my pillow and cry?

The pain is getting too much to bear
I just wish someone would care

I used to have a friend. One day he told me I choose to be like this. Choose to be depressed? I do not fake this for attention. Why does everyone think I do? This is why I am being denied a right to help!

This poem touched me I've been battling depression for year most days I feel like I want to die because it feels too hard to carry on. The only reason I haven't killed myself is because I reach out to my friend who brings be back from the brink of killing myself everytime. I know I'm meant to get help my friends always tell me that it would help ease my pain. I've recently gotten worse I don't feel like eating and my moods are so wild it's like a hurricane. This is the first I've seen these poems and it helps remind me that I'm not alone.

You're not alone. trust me! My name is Jackie and I've always been made fun of. I have no friends. and I have never told my parents about being depressed because al that will do for me is counseling! I'm only 13 and I've experienced pain suffering. I have this 6th sense that allows me to communicate with supernatural presences. so I get made fun of for that. but you're not alone at all. I care.

My name is Madison and believe me, you're not alone. Every day I struggle with depression and it doesn't just effect me but everyone around. Yet, somehow, no one notices or cares. There's so many times I think "why am I still here? All I'm doing is screwing things up. Why can't this just end?" and I end up with no real answer every time. It sucks. I've tried hurting myself physically to try to get rid of the pain I feel inside and the only things I get from that are scars.
Depression is one of the hardest things in my life and that on top of everything else is a huge burden but sometimes finding someone to talk about it with that has the same situation as you can help. My best friend has depression and believe me, relating to her helps so much.

I care. I am only 14 and I've been depressed for years. and all to often I feel like this. I hate the lies people say when they say "it will get easier."

But I'm there for you . . . all the way Tommy

I'm going through the same, it feels like everyone has abandoned me, every little incident happening in my life is disheartening me, I'm starting to fall apart, all I want is to make my life better but its getting impossible.

I can totally relate to your poem and pain! I feel the pain, hurt and abandonment of everyone that I thought cared and loved me always left me! Without a care in the world. I live my life constantly in fear in ever wanting to be in any kind of relationship with any man cause I'm afraid of being abandoned. I was left to die in streets of Calcutta India as a baby. Was left and was raised in a orphanage with no love or care.

I know the feeling. I've had too many thoughts like that and I've just wanted too. There's always something holding me back though, and I just don't know what, but for me, there is someone who cares, or at least I think she does. I don't know how much longer I can last in the pain.
