JUST LIKE YOU

*JUST LIKE YOU*

Everything you’ve written
Every feeling you’ve felt,
Every emotion that’s weld up within you, Every fear that you’ve ran from,
Every longing that you’ve lacked
I too have been there
I too am there
Just like you
Just like you
You’re not alone
I’ve had the bursting out of
public tears
The ones you can barely contain
The fear of what people would think
if you did it unexpectedly
I’ve come across millions of highhorsers
who think that telling us that
it’ll be OK,
or “why don’t you just do this or just do that”
like thier inexperienced logic is the solution to our problems
or like it’s as simple as they guess
it would be
That our invisible pain will
just go away
Disappear
Vanish
Dissipate
It disgusts me and makes me wanna scream
SHUT THE FUCK UP!
YOU DON’T KNOW!
You don’t know!
It seems as if I can relate to everyone’s pain
And I’m not afraid to admit it
or afraid to share my story
I read yours, but you reject mine
Ignore me
Go head
Your loss
I’m a human being who deals
Who is hurt and who is dealing
Sometimes publicly

MOST TIMES INTERNALLY


Just like you

One thought on “JUST LIKE YOU

  1. So true. I’m dealing with being high functioning depressed. I have no choice but to get up, get ready, take daughter to school, go to work, etc. When days I want to stay under the covers and hide from the world. I’m lonely and feel no one cares. All the friends that were there for me are gone so this is where I go for some sort of connection with someone who understands.
