What Will "home" Bring?
Author: Brett


They say home is where the heart is
But what happens when your heart is broken?..
Too many lies and false promises
Too many fakes and "friends", leaving words never spoken..

To smile seems like a challenge in itself
But I try my hardest to keep my hopes and head up high..
Friends who think they care by saying hello
While on the inside they can't see how I slowy die..

It's not like I havn't tried sharing my thoughts
I make it clear how I feel all the time..
My poems and words are a sign of it all
Yet they refuse to acknowledge these feelings of mine..

I'm now at a point where I feel lost in life
Alone and useless with thoughts of suicide..
I never imagined life could deal me this hand
Now I'll be lucky if by 30 I'm still alive..

Home Sweet Home

Brett! I would confess my sad stories to you, but I won't. The last stanza seems to really be bugging at young people today including myself. Depression is almost commonplace or widespread now. Hope your return to home will bring you something good, something to enjoy before college starts again. Then it'll be back to the grind. Hehehe... We both know about that!
I hope your fav. movie and food will cheer you up! Something that's to your liking!
Take it easy Brett!
