Stigma Fighters : Bridget

I finished this today and I wanted to share it with you. It’s kinda the easiest way to tell you or others how I feel.

Imagine yourself
Alone in your head
You’re hanging, dangling
From a silver thread

Empty, alone
With the monsters within
Internally screaming
You just want to give in

Now imagine that’s you
Every day, every hour
Forever sinking
Like a wilting flower

You try to tell your dad
And you try to tell your mom
But they say you’re being silly
You’ve just got to move on

Because teens don’t know sorrow
Nor the hardships of life
They’re just kids with imaginations
Just looking for attention, right?

You think that there’s none
Who know how you feel
You’re just so alone
But the feelings- they’re real

Useless
Neglected
Forgotten
Distressed

Alone
Afraid
But mostly
Depressed

And you’re friends
They go on
Like nothing has changed

“They must not care”
Your thoughts whisper
The lies in your brain

You can’t escape it
Trapped in your own skin
You’re ugly
You’re hated
But you mask it with a grin

You hate what you feel
So instead you feel nothing
Your insides are numb
Your confidence crumbling

You look to other things
To stop the pain
Cutting, pills
But it gives you no gain

And the people around you
Shout abuse your way
“You’re hurting yourself, stop it!”
That’s all they ever say

No matter how you plead
That you’re broken inside
They turn the other way
They run, they hide

They say you’re just foolish
It’s all in your head
What they don’t know, is inside
You’re already dead
