Why

As I remain here where I lie,
I keep asking that I will quickly die.
 
I hate this stupid self-centered life,
where all people are filled with hate & strife.

As my mom feels so wonderful from popping pills, 
I'm stuck here with the worst gut-wrenching feeling that kills.

I'm sick of my life being filled with tears, cutting, & sadness.
Why can't we just end all the madness?

Why can't people have a life where no tears are seen, only laughs, smiles, & happiness.
And no one could intervene?

    Hi, Halee. James P. told me to look you up, and if Sir James takes an interest, then I take an interest. As to your poem -I've been there. Done that. Good thing though...it gets better and even good. Hang in there, Halee. Love, Dave- and welcome to the soup where us folks do care.
