Is it light?
Or dark?
Because lately
things aren't
looking too bright.

Is it real?
Or fake?
Because looking
out I see a lot
of fakers.

Is it warm?
Or cold?
Because everywhere
I look things
are cold as ice.

Is it loud?
Or silent?
Because no
on seems to
hear me.

Is it there?
Or a dream?
Because if its
a dream, its more
like a nightmare.

Is it understandable?
Or just confusing?
Because I can't
find anyone who
understands me.

Are you there?
Or am I alone?
Because there
is no one else
around here.

Does it get better?
Or is it?
Because if this is
the best, then
get me out of here.

The author's comments:
Ok, so don't think I'm depressed or anything. I'm a really upbeat person, but watching what the people around me are going through, it led me to write this. So, please leave any comments and share your story, because if no one hears your story, how will they know it exists?
