When people ask why i cut
i say think just a minute
if no one cared about you
you would cut to
of course when they ask
my feelings they try to unmask
its not like they actually care
of my depression the are unaware
no one understands me
no one even bothers to see
all my unhappiness and pain
all the cutting i use to keep me sane
my own parents just think its a phase
that will end i a couple days
but the problem is much deeper
and with each passing day i become weaker
if only they knew
that i am so sad and blue

please comment!!!!

    Ive been thru this.. in your depression, you think that no one cares, but i find that hard to believe... i believe some people become comfortable with being depressed, myself included.. because of this, we take on the i hate the world approach, and it doesnt help us at all.. i cant speak for you,.. but for me it's passed and i can smile while saying that.. honestly.. im not in a very good place right now and i could be depressed, but im just not.. i choose to be content.. and hopefully u can or already have come to a point like that.. anyway.. your work is full of spelling mistakes, beginning with the title.. i wont go through and tell u because it prolly wont make a difference, but i find that the more spelling errors seen, the less appealing your work is.. its kinda like the idea that if u didnt take the time to use spell check, why should we take the time to read/comment.. anyway.. 3/5.. keep writing, and reading will also help you develop writing skills, as well as spelling and vocabulary..
