Empty eyes
And mechanized actions
Day after day
I'm not dead
But I'm not alive either
Somewhere in between
As I drag my body
Through time and space
Like a zombie
Without a mind of my own
Without hopes or dreams
Not living
Just surviving
And letting numbness
Be my only feeling
Something I wrote between classes today. Enjoy.

To feel any different I believe one has to follow their heart and do what they want to do in life...even if that is risky.

I want to write, I want to help others... But I'm too much of a mess for that.

Look pal everyone is a mess deep inside, nobody's perfect...you have great skill, you should pursue what you want to do in life, people are always going to try to put you down in the life, and try and make you feel worthless but you musn't let them...'cos you aren't.

Maybe I have skills. But what good are they in this world? But I have to keep trying to ignore the people who try to put me down, they are not worth my time.

And you're right they aren't worth your time, don't listen to them, they'll just poison you if you let them.

Yeah, gotta ignore them :)

:hug: The overall plot may seem the same, but look for those little things that are different day-to-day. Let them entertain you when the rest turns sterile.

No matter how many times you recycle a plot, it just gets boring after a while.

they always say the dreams of the broken are stronger than the ones of the dead.  I know the dreams are hard to find, but they ARE there, sleeping and waiting to be awakened.  regaining your normal self is hard, challenging even, but we are here to take it on with you.   
Reply
:iconghostoftheemptygrave:
The problem is that this is becoming my normal self. And if the dreams are ther, they're very well hidden. But thanks anyway.

Your welcome and you're right. Life gets pretty boring just doing the same thing day after day after day after day and so on. But if you stick with that routine long enough, something good will come from it, friend. At least that's how I like to think about it.
Reply
:iconghostoftheemptygrave:
I guess that's reasonable. I have to be patient and endure it until that time comes.
