64 (who?)

You cry for your sorrows and you bleed for your dreams,

Just always remember, this world is not what it seems.

You can be the best of friends and then disappear,

They'll just discard you, I know it's hard to hear.


But this has happened enough to me,

It's all everyone's been doing recently.

So here I lie, discarded, fearing to stand up,

Because what waits just isn't worth getting up.


Thrown away and lying in a puddle of mud and blood,

All the other times I got up, and wiped off the mud.

But this time, as I lie here, broken and bloody,

I don't want to get up, I want to be a dead body.


I know getting up is inevitable, because I will never give in,

But I really just want to give up and say that "I'm done in."

This is perfect.
Things change so quickly, so what's the point in labeling them, in cherishing them when they'll just end sooner or later.

Don't give up on life. Death isn't going to solve everyone elses's problems. Life is just a game. There is no restart and you can't set the skill level (e.g. Easy, Normal, Expert), but like a knight who know that queen's coming for him, you must soldier on. As a knight you are expected to take out as many rivals as you can before you have no choice, but to throw in the boot. If not for yourself, do it for someone who loves you.

Don't give up on everyone. There are some of us that won't leave. :hug:

The only person you can unquestioningly rely on in life is yourself. You can't expect other people to offer that same certainty. If you can reach a place where you are content with yourself, regardless of the people or social situation in your life, then you'll find true friends who aren't petty and superficial, and learn to accept those that are.

You obviously are a very caring and loving person, otherwise you wouldn't be so hurt emotionally by the actions of other people. You should identify what you want and need out of life; if you want to dedicate your life to a specific goal (maybe helping people) then pursue that because without greater purpose we all would be consumed by these overwhelming emotions.

You've got to look out for yourself, more for the emotional side of your soul because that's what makes life worth living. It's not logical, rational or convenient, but it also doesn't have to control your life and make you feel worthless. But basing it on other people will always cause problems, because most people are only looking out for themselves.

This was a bit of a ramble, but I really just hope it helps in someway.

I don't believe the last part of the third paragraph. I just don't, and I never will.

Well when I personally interact with people, neither do I. That's why I said 'most' people. And I guess my assumption there is that you're young like me and around people your own age. My own negative experiences coming out, I suppose.

Nope, not young.
