No Reason To Care

(9/4/94 / Somewhere)

_I'm Living In Hell_

you tell me you understand
you tell me I can talk to you
you tell me to trust you
and that you've been put through this too

but you don't understand
you don't know
I can't talk to you
because you'd tell some one

and even know you say it's for the best
I know your trying to make me like the rest
with pills and therapy
with talking and `help`

I know your hidden plan
you want to change me
you want me normal
you want me to be something I'm not


I know your plan but you don't know mine
and that is just part of the game
the game you think your winning

the pills don't help
I pretend to take them
I don't listen to your help
and I hide in the dark instead of the light

just because I look happy
you assume all is well
when deep in my mind
I'm living in hell

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
