93 (who?)
I skilfully avoid all of the questions
About my fragile state of mind
I wonder how anyone could locate me
When I was never here to find

Maybe I only exist in conversations
Filled with the conceit of hindsight
But it’s too late to drop the gun to the table
With the bullets already in flight

I skilfully avoid feelings of happiness
It seems more of an effort to smile
A shadow was permanently cast over me
Just like the face of a sundial

Maybe I only exist as a silhouette
A vague outline that’s lost in time
Is it too late for me to turn away from my woes
And show my face to the sunshine?

NO it isn't late for you and you've got everything in your hands. maybe you have been disappointed by many around you. well you aren't alone. we all have been through this. it is not because people disappoint us but because they fail to express their true selves and we in return fail to understand their true selves :) you are completely fine. this is your learning phase and you will come out only stronger :hug:

I always like things like this.

I myself suffer from anxiety, and thus depression.

Things like this tell me someone can understand.
