I know that you remember all of those bitter moments
But what is it worth for to keep those memories working
They’re not making you happy; they’re just making you hopeless
Then follows depression from the feelings that you’ve let lurking

Because you went through it, but you relive it every moment
When it’s all in your mind and you’re making it a necessary component
It’s just jarring to your heart, yet you keep it for your mind is uncertain  
Many broken hearts, from family to friends, something you won’t admit was certain

I’ve been like you, for months to years, having a mind that’s unclear
And so I’ve shed so many tears, all which came from fear
Though it could be hard to move along, no one ever said you cannot
So please, don’t give up, I believe in you, even if you do not
So, drawing made by :iconanimemaniac19:
But yea, remember to forget the bad.
Also, remember that talking always help, no matter the situation.

This could be a really great rap, or spoken word or something. amazing rhythm. I love your poetry, less is definately more.

True on the length, as long as the meaning gets to you.

Also, every poem that I write is a song in my head.

You should pick up a guitar and write music to go to some of them. Itd be amazing.

That's why I want to learn how to play guitar.
Or at least get one and teach myself...

One year I'll learn how to, eventually.

Its not too hard, I recommend just taking like a month of lessons, just to learn all the frets and notes and scales and chords, then just teach yourself online. Thats how I did it.

Yeah.
I'm thinking of learning how to play guitar in a year or so.
Would be nice if earlier.

But I will learn... Eventually.
Thanks for the advice.

Beautiful :) Ironically, I was just telling someone something along the lines of this... to face their feelings, and let them go, because there isn't any point in holding onto those pains.

I used to be depressed too, but I moved on. The interesting thing about the drawing here is that I sometimes say "an Angel took my hand and walked me out of the dark."

If there was anything I could say to my past self Im sure something like this would be on my mind. A really beautiful piece with a really awesome message :love:
