I am from a place of darkness and light.
I am from a place where everyone seems
all right but deep inside they are in darkness.
I am from a place where you are weird
for being sad
You hear people say I’m here for you
but when you need them…
Nothing but silence…
I am from a place where teens run a blade
across their wrists
where teens have to hide their cuts just
to hide their feelings.
I am from a place where teens smoke
weed to ease the pain
to escape the sad thoughts
I am from a place where there
Where you have fun playing games
Where you have great memories of your life
That happiness doesn’t stay long.
then, there is silence again…
