Post of The Month

Abigail is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hi there,

Welcome to the boards. Hope you gind it more helpful.

Its hard to find support, sorry that no one will take you to see your gp/doctor i am not sure if this is the same for you but you are aload to book doctors appointments without your parents being there and you can attend them unacccompanied.

Depression and other illness can be quite scary especially when your quite young. Do have a look round the site there are lots of useful articles and information on here.

You are not alone.

Sunday to thursday we have support chats and general chats on at 8pm till 9:30pm if you would like to join them. They are a great way to get to know people and seak support at the same time. Heres the link to the page -

Hope to see you round

    I tried to talk to you
    When that didnít work,
    I tried to show you,
    When that backfired,
    I tried to see it from your view.

    About a kid,
    Who is not your child,
    Or related in anywayÖ

    I stepped into your shoes,
    And then I realised,
    That I am nothing to you.

      They donít get it.
      How wounds appear,
      Itís not the actions of our razors,
      But our fallen tears.

        Speak from your feelings,
        Feel from your soul,
        and listen with your eyes
        Because not every secret is told.

          I remember phrases,
          From when I was wee,
          Of how I should be,
          And what was wrong with me.

          I remember being told,
          I was to be seen and unheard,
          For a child has no mind
          Upon this adult earth.

          These words didnít bother me,
          But what hurt was not mattering enough,
          For someone to know that they eventually would.

            As i walk this lonely road, no one seems to care,
            The trees rustle in the wind as they stand there bare,
            I can hear them coming closer now , but it seems to late,
            I run down to the farm i see and lean on the rusty gate,
            I can hear a whisper now, a whisper in my ear,
            Something that i may allow to take away my tears,
            But who are they i wonder as i say,
            I turn around and they quickly run away.

              I stopped writing poems a while ago because they sucked but I gave it another go *cringe*
              When the sun shines,
              when the wind blows,
              when the sun sets,
              when the air is still,
              when the rain falls upon my windowsill,
              when the birds call,
              and the world cries,
              when heaven and nature sighs,
              you never fail to surprise,
              because no matter how I'm feeling,
              your love and kindness,
              and open mindedness,
              never runs out,
              like a lifetime supply.

                I wonder who this is about? Hehe
