Another sleepless night, as I lie awake in my bed. As my thoughts race, and I wish that I was dead. My eyes are wide open. My window tightly shut, as I suddenly get a sinking feeling in my gut. This is depression. This is my daily pain. This is the feeling of sleeplessness and sorrow that will soon come again. Why must God torture me so? I thought he loved us all. No matter how many times I’d pray to him, he’d never answer my call. He’d never answer my plea. That the people I loved would love me for me. That I’d be respected. That I’d be cared for. That I wouldn’t be someone who they would just ignore. I don’t want to be ignored. I want to be loved. I want to be someone they wouldn’t forget. I want to be someone they’d be happy that they have met. But I am nothing. As I’m told. I do not understand. I have a heart of gold. What am I doing wrong? What am I saying? These thoughts keep me up at night. These thoughts keep replaying. I just wanna close my eyes, tight as can be. And then open them up to see, that people love me, for me.
