Positively Depressed – Prayers for Ft. Hood

Dammit Society!
Educate Yourselves

The stigma placed on Mental Illness has got to end NOW!
Violence and Suicide is never the answer.
I just feel that this definitely could have been avoided.
My heart goes out to everyone affected by this senseless
tragedy, including the shooter’s family.

Lastly, since this is the second tragedy that
Ft. Hood has had to endure in just a few years,
Please United States Military, you have got to do more
for the very people that live, die,  and
fight for everyone’s freedom.

Positively Depressed – Be Loud and Proud

So here I am today no longer silent.
I am loud and proud.
And believe me, I have a lot to say.
I have been silent for too long.
I am satisfied of who I am.
I am finally free from the chains
of an ignorant society.
I will educate and talk openly
for all of society to hear.

I am no longer embarrassed.
I am happy to say that I truly do not care
what anyone else thinks of me and that my friends
is my definition of freedom.

But I wake another day to face the challenges thrown at me, one minute, one hour, one day at a time.

I have got to come up with some better, different coping skills. I need to be ready, ready for anything. I have to remain strong. She needs me no matter how hard she tries to push me away.

But I will continue to get back up everytime I fall, one minute, one hour, one day at a time.
