“Unrest of Spirit”
Sponsored by Julia Ward



Everyday is the same
Only the date differentiates these passing days
Quiet rooms no one to call
Regret, extreme fears, ultimately self-hate
Souls a wreck sleep all day but feel no rest
Dancing in the graveyard of my dreams in my head 
Something has got to change 
Want to stop fantasizing about suicide and death
And I  know nothing will change depressed in my bed
I awake and get dressed 
Still numb but still moving 
I’ll free fall off the edge 
Stepping off the porch I breathe deep eyes adjust to the sun
Finally I feel something
Calm, accepting, and at peace
I won’t be the reason I die before I’m dead
