Do Something About It


Let's clear up some misconceptions about being


It's not too outlandish an idea to reconginze that

getting better

cannot be equated with


Depression is a hunger for something lost or


What are you really doing

up at 3 in the morning

crying alone in an empty room?

Searching, craving

not something better, but anything.

A person so deprived, so lacking, will take


If you're not there for your friend in their worst state,

who will be?

What will be?

If they can't trust you with their pain,

why would they trust

a stranger?
