THE MONSTER UNDER MY BED
No one will believe me…I tell myself, as I try to drift off to sleep.
But sleep doesn’t come easy to me these days. I lay here in the dark, wondering if I would be happier, if I wasn’t me.
This is silly, I tell myself. I have people who love me. My mom loves me, but sometimes it feels as if she doesn’t understand me. But then again…what adult does truly understand a teenage mind.
One or two? I take that back. Zero.
Depression surrounds me, but I must not let it draw me in. I’m really trying, but there are days when I wonder if it is enough.
