I've come to realize that life isn't all that we want it to be. One of my friend lost herself in the growing void of her stress and it led her to chronic depression. Sometimes I wish I could carry her burden so she wouldn't have to be so down all the time.... My heart goes out to those who are in a similar situation and I wish the very best to you
Thank you for your nice, thoughtful comments on my poem "I'll Soon Be Something Of The Past".. I appreciate all that you said. It was a little hard to write on this topic... but it wasn't forced; so I enjoyed writing the poem. It also made me pause to think of the hardships people faced way before I was born and how under-privileged they were. I am glad you liked it.
