    o yes...
    i've been there
    when times were tough

    throwing both hands
    into the air saying

    i've had enough

    this world sucks and
    nobody cares

    while storming aimlessly
    down the stairs

    yes...
    i've been there

    silently thinking and
    depressed

    flooding my head with
    negative thoughts

    completely isolating
    myself repressed like
    a game of chess

    plotting my next move...

    these options
    i choose to abuse
    confuse then misuse

    in the game of life

    are REFUSED

    suddenly i arose
    like a plane in mid-air
    flying toward the door
    for what lied beyond

    fresh air

    but saw a little girl
    playing in the sand
    crying out in frustration

    as i lifted her from the
    ground onto both feet
    like she stood

    no longer did i care
    the moment had already
    passed

    and yes...
    i've been there

    You know...

    [SIZE=huge]...This is accurate
    beyond belief. So,
    you know you're,
    definitely, not the
    only one whose
    been there.
    You knocked that
    nail right on the tip
    of its head with this
    one...:D
