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.

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 really liked this poem. good job! it's [A]mazing! =]
lauren
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
Samantha
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

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.

I think this poem is very unique. It has a lot of emotion . It touched my heart a lot and made me relize that being in a relationship like that is wrong. It was great to relize that someone else has went through what I have.

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.

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

I really liked your poem. It reminds me that I'm not the only one in the world that feels this way. I dont know how old you are or anything, but I'm 21 and it still hasn't gotten any better. Just know you aren't alone and you do have friends out here even though you cant see us. Also, remember- it doesn't matter what everyone else thinks. As long as you like yourself, that's all that really matters.

B
I can relate to you I'm always there for people but at times people only see what they want!
Amanda
This is a fabulous poem. I often feel the same way, not "worth it". I don't want to get up in the morning to face another day where I will be rejected and hurt by people I'm supposed to trust. This is exactly how I feel. Keep writing poems that touch people.
Rrebecca

Janice
Thanks, Jenna, for the poem that does relate to me. After how many months when "friends" never call me back nor want to go for coffee and visits, I tried hard to move on with my own life, finding new friends who could accept me for who I am.
Heather
I can relate to this poem. I feel this way. every day of my life. Sometimes I don't even want to wake up in the morning. I hate how I feel this internal death. I just hope that one day it will go away.
Bonnie
I just wanted to say that this poem is exactly how I have been feeling for the past yr. I came home after a yr frm college after abusing alcohol and bieng drugged and sexually assaulted. I became severely depressed and felt worthless. After months went by I got better but in the past month I have found myself to be crying daily and feeling like my life is worthless once again. I'm not going to go in to my life story but it makes me feel better for the moment that someone out there feel's the same way i do.
Tasha
I feel like this to. Im always there for my friends and when I need help they say wierd things that dont really make sense to me. So i dont ask for help anymore. at least from them

Chelsi
This is a very good poem, I know exactly how you are feeling. Its happend to me and its left is long term effects on me, the one thing that really helps me out though is knowing that I am not alone in it.

Jackie
I thought that this poem was very much like one ive written before, and i only pray and hope its better for you. It was very well written.
Ashley
hey i dont know if u meant in that poem that it being the last time and not being worth it n e more, in a suicidal sense, well i've been there, i even attempted suicide. and really found out then who really cared. but please dont ever try to kill yourself, becuz life is so beauitful. and i know how it feels to be depressed, but you gotta look past the bad things and hold on to something special, something like a passion, for me is singin and writing music. but even though i dont know you, or your life, i hope whatever it is that put you down, you have some way to look past it all. remember if no one cares, god always does
traci
hey, this is a great poem, its EXACTLY how i feel and no one really understands.
Becca
this is a great poem which i can relate to.often i have "freinds" tell me they are always there for me when im feeling suicidal or something..but then at times when i try to open up and ask for advice or help or evan just a friend to be there when im all alone they rarly say much or act right cold like they want me to leave them alone. it hurts and some people ought to watch what they say.if a friend says they are there for you they should only say it if they mean it.anyhow.great poem
Sarah
Good Poem.But honey i know what ur feeling too It always happens to me and you feel like ur not good engouh and that.But Dont worry about them ppl cos really in the long run they arnt worth it and they are the ones that a mising out.So Honey Dont worry about them FORGET THEM! Dont run after them make them run after u and if they dont they arnt worth it.Its happen to me and i dont run after them anymore. You really find out who really cares about u. and when u do stick with them dont let them go i made that mastake and i regret it
Katie

This is a beautiful poem. I know exactly how this person feels because it happens to me all the time. Only I don't know how to express it in words.
Michael
This is exactly like my life
Jackie
I really enjoyed this poem....I write poems to about things in my life and her poem just seemed so real to me. I think she is very creative.
