Writing sometimes is a big and scary thing.

Expressing oneself,

putting yourself out there

for criticism

where everyone can see you and you are all exposed.

Your heart and soul are laid bare

as you give your all hoping for approval.

For that slim chance that they understand

your feelings, your thoughts

and are touched.

As we ourselves have been touched

at one point in our lives.

Poetry & writing are one way to express yourself and help people through things, but they are not the only way.  Please realize that you are not alone.  If you are feeling depressed, or having thoughts of suicide please contact someone.  You can always call for help
