    Look Away

    On the outside I smile. I wink. giggle. I laugh. I pull back the veil and may you see my scars. I hide them so I won't remember the reason for their place, and so you wont see the violence of my past.

    I wasn't sure if I was depressed.

    It would have been a mild form that I still attended college with and never sought help for, but I was quite unhappy. My mood was generally low and I was often tearful. I'd be standing in the kitchen crying at a family gathering. I remember being called with "how are you feeling...

    Self Portrait

    Once upon a time, I had a suicide attempt. Actually, this was suicide attempt number fourteen, and I was pretty close to dying when my mother opened my closet. She dropped the socks and got me off in a minute. Then, she slapped me. "What the hell are you doing?" she asked...

    Don't Give Up

    It was last year around this time, when I basically lost everything. I got laid off from my job, which meant I had to move back home with my parents. I soon began to run out of the little money that I had saved up. To add to it, I felt like I could never be loved for stupid...

    ...but I'm not anymore.

    Just a year back, I was so badly depressed. I thought it would be the end of my life: actually, I didn't even look forward to any life. I thought there was something wrong with me, something that prevented me from feeling happiness, joy or any normal feelings that other people...

    I used to be a really happy

    From the beginning of this year I knew I had my

    work cut out for me. But I didn't know how hard it would truly be. I go to a Private school, we have a small amount of students at our school so therefore we know each other more personally. My school goes up to Pre-k to 8th grade. The Preschool and Kindergarten are together...

    I don't even remember what caused it.

    I do remember what fed it, though. All those stupid fights I had with my friends, my family treating me like dirt, and everything else. I do remember the feeling, though. I remember what I would do. I used to cute, or rant, but ranting never helped as much as cutting did. I was...
