Many times a day I stop
and look in the mirror,
most of the time I
think why am I here.

The reflection that looks
back at me seems lonely
and scared,not remembering
when the last time was 
anyone really cared.

Lately I think alot about
wanting to die,my life just
keeps going down hill
so why even try.

When life gets overwhelming,
I sometimes stop and pray,
hoping that tomorrow it
will be a better day.

I get upset when things get
to me as easy as they do,
but I wouldn't wish for anyone
to spend one day in my shoes.

I can't wait until the day
that reflection in the mirror,
says all the pain was worth it
and I'm glad that your still here.

You have a true gift for expressing real and deep emotions through your writing. The pain is felt through your words by the reader. I do hope things are going better for you and that soon we can see some happy writes from you. I can imagine how uplifting they would be when expressed with such depth. Blessings from Lolita
