About the Poem

This is a poem about being taken advantage of. I am always there for people, but they never seem to have time for me.

this poem touched me and i feel the same way that you are feeling in that poem. friendship and trust is just an illusion to me. no one really is my true friends and there are alot of people out there who dont know what it feels like to be someone with the fear of being forgotten, being lonely and being pushed down. athazagoraphobia is what we all grasp. (phobia of being forgotten) i tried being happy again but i found out later it wasnt making me even a bit happier. although people say that you can get over it easily, people like you and i know that its very hard to overcome depression. but just hang in there. theres hope in finding happiness in the future

This poem just touched me. after i read it, i felt that a couple of months ago that was all i felt. but now whenever i fall down i think of everything good that has happened to me and i get right back up again.
Gillian
This explains exactly how i felt recently and i hope to never go there again xx

Down Again

I've been pushed down so many times
I feel this time will be the last
as I lay here fading
my thoughts are invaded by memories of my past
I feel the pressures of shame and rejection building
as I lay here on the floor
I have no strength to get up
I'm not worth it any more

i thought this poem was excellent and made me think there are people out there that dont have the life some people have and would rather be dead i think its horrible that somebody could feel this way and how people make them feel this way but u get people out there that are just there to hurt people nobody is worth taking ur life for.

Funny, how poems potray other people and how they feel. This is exactly how i feel all day everyday, dont know why it wont go away, dont know when it will go away. We think that only if our questions are answered everything will drift away. Most try, but ive tried and it doesnt help me just to forget everything cause then it just comes back ten times worse. This poem touched me, its in the eyes of a young girl who is suffering.
Justine

life is like a game,there are times of GLORY and triumph,but most are sadness and failure,so play your game right and tough cuz when you fall theres no turning back. Life is not matter of destiny,but its a matter of choice. jhake41
