Who needs sleep? As long as I pass...
"Don't you fail, boy. I'll beat your ass."
Need the the pills to handle reality.
"Just one more is all I need.
Thank god i don't have to hear your voice.
"I'm not hooked, i do it by choice."
In a bottle of pills, there lies my fate.
"Not just you, everyone I know, I hate."
Some call it death.
I call it that too.
Your greatest encouragement was all your doubt.
"There was no way to save a kid like you
Ethan, I dont even know if I know how to respond to this poem.
It effects me deeply.
the poem in itself is brilliantly written,
the use of the quotes are perfect and impact me greatly.
but it is the honesty and the toll you express that impacts the most.
I understand this kind of pressure, and the cost it takes on the soul of a"child"
and while my "mommy instincts" want to give you advice, Ill spare you a well intentioned lecture.you already know what I would say anyway.Im sure you've heard it all by now.
sometimes things hurt so much we do feel the need to be"comfortaly numb"
I hope you find release and escape and comfort in your writing.
I hope you can find away to move on past it without losing your self.
dont let "them" take anymore of you,
that's like letting them win.
YOU are better than they ever knew or gave you credit for.
take care wise poet,
Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme,
They are not measured by the commitment of time.
Some emotions run too deep to be described by words,
Forgiveness and understanding-remain the most beautiful words ever heard.

The world calls a butterfly"
