He has black hair, and mine is blue.

He cares about people, and I lost all faith in them.

He loves his wife and kids with all his heart, nobody will ever get close enough to me to love.

He loves to draw, I can’t find the reason to pick up the pen anymore.

He doesn’t love me anymore, I still yearn for the father-daughter relationship.


She let’s nothing get in her way, I let everyone take advantage of me.

She has confidence to wear anything, and I hide my skin with any fabric I can find.

She isn’t afraid to speak what’s on her mind, and I never know what mine is trying to say.

She can drive and go wherever she wants to, while i’m trapped in the walls of this treatment center.

She never loved me, yet I try to build a relationship between me and my mom.


He has so much energy he is bouncing off the walls, while I can’t find a reason to get out of bed.

He is so creative he can build a planet out of his legos, I can only build walls against me and the people who try to come in.

He has grades that could put anyone to shame, while I don’t know if I’ll graduate this year.

He has so many friends he can’t name them all, while I can name all my demons that try to comfort me.

He still looks up to me and says he loves me, and I know i’m not worthy of my brother’s innocent love.


There is a huge wall between me and my family. We all helped to build it, and yet all they do is complain why I made it. But sometimes i’m afraid of the life that would be without a wall. After all, who could love a depressed girl who yearns for death?
