Is it worth it?

Location

My father is an alcoholic.

My mother's love is harsh. 

When I talk, nothing I say is heard

The only thing keeping me sane is my writing. 

It's my outlet when everything is going downhill. 

In the eyes of my parents, everything must be perfect

all my grades, my apperance and my speech

I try so hard, but it is never enough

Writing helps me find myself

It helps me express the part of me that must be hidden during the day. 

My secrets, desires, dreams are things I only keep inside me. 

It is sometimes too much, but I deal it with it

Through my writing. 

Without it 

I would have gone through with my suicide

It tempts me everyday, but I stay strong

I thank my paper and pen for saving me 

Writing is all I got.
