Silence

She used to be anything but silence.

Outgoing, sweet, making new friends,

she lit up the group chat.

She used to tell others her troubles, 

eventually realizing nobody 

can help.

She is now silent.

She stays isolated,

doesn’t bother others with her troubles.

She’s crumbling inside,

nothing will save her.

She is silent,

isolated,

silently trying to succeed.

How long can a girl last

when she’s so silent?

Not My Owm

I don’t go to therapy to find out if I’m a freak

I go and I find the one and only answer every week

And when I talk about therapy, I know what people think 

That it only makes you selfish and in love with your shrink

But, oh how I loved everybody else

When I finally got to talk so much about myself 
– Dar Williams, What Do You Hear in These Sounds 

A Cry for Help

All I do is bring people down.

All I do is push people away.

All I want is to make people happy.

All I want is people around me.

Yet it feels out of my control.

How do people live knowing

all they do is hurt others?

Please, I’m begging for the answer. 

How do people stop hurting others?

All I want is happy people, 

all I do is the opposite.

I need help,

I’m begging for it to go away 

and it won’t.

I need it to go away.
