I just feel so stressed so I wrote this.

All these twist and turns are making my head spin...

I can hardly think of what to do next...

I feel as though I am on a merry-go round...

I smile and laugh...

Everything seems so darn jolly...

Next thing I know I am frowning...

Life is a mystery, is it not?

But why does it cause me so much pain...

So much confusion...

There have been times in which I thought of dying...

But I have always gone against it...

Because I love my friends and family too much to cause them that pain...

This merry-go round is spinning around...

I wonder where I will end up next...

It will take you, my friend, to a new place... Where other writers can see your sweet face!
Another day, in another play, just the big race; Not like so many others here in this place...
Leaving this world, without even a trace! You have contributed! Put on a good face!!
