<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">These walls</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Feel like a prison</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This box I hide myself in</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">It’s collapsing </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And I can’t find the door to get out</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The room is filled with invisible doubts</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Fears and emotions that I only know one way</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">To get them to stop screaming at me</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">I am not proud of it</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">I am downright terrified</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The people I call friends</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Help me so much</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">But I still worry that </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">One day they will hate me as much as I do</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">I don’t eat and nothing is easy anymore</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Living every day is a pain</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">But I do it and to me</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">I am stronger than any girl of steel could ever be</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">My life has changed</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">My field of daisies and flowers</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Has died and I just can’t do it</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Live every day like nothing is wrong </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">When everything is wrong</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">When the walls of society don’t exist anymore </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And I just float in that black void </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Between belonging and popularity</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The one candle that lit that dark void</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Is gone, snuffed out like it was nothing</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And in this dark void is a tempting offer</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Like the devil is asking me to sell my soul</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">But then the demon raging in my head fades</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And that one part of me that is still human</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Wonders why would I put the people I love through this</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">But then the demon takes hold once again </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And tells me that no one loves me</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Over and Over day after day</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And to be honest</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">He’s right and sure</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">You just think I am crazy and ranting</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">But to me this is the next best thing</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This might not mean anything to you but </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Five months, five months without a new scar</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">But without a new scar I realize that </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The voices in my head get stronger</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">I can hardly stop my hands from shaking </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And just like that my beautiful God given gift</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Is torn away from me</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">But that doesn’t even come close to </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The pain I feel 24/7</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And as a reflex I have started calling</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">These marks of pain  my “battle scars”</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">What battle was I in you may ask</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">I have one answer for you</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">I am losing a war with myself</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And I won that tiny trivial battle </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">But it doesn’t matter now</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Because I hurt so much </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And there is nothing</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">That anyone can</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Do about</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">It </span></p>

You might view cool as not caring about anything and going with the flow, You might view cool as being dark and mysterious, or you might view cool as being nice, open, and friendly. If you’re happy with who you are now then there’s no need to change that. There are no specific factors to being cool other than being confident with who you are.</span></p><p> </p><p><em><span style=font-weight:400>I’m feeling sad and I don’t know what to do about it can you guys help me?</span></em></p><p><span style=font-weight:400>Sadness is a normal part of life and is an emotion we have all dealt with. If this feeling of sadness is persistent and overwhelming, then it would be a good idea to seek professional help. Seeking help may sound scary but you’ll be glad you did it in the long run. If there are things that make you feel better, do them. Talk to friends, engage in your hobbies, but most importantly seek help if your sadness starts holding you back.</span></p><p> </p><p><em><span style=font-weight:400>I am feeling depressed and I don’t know what to do.</span></em></p><p><span style=font-weight:400>Depression is a serious thing that can be treated. Know that help is always available. Here at school we have a Licensed Professional Counselor in room 305 who can help you figure out what’s going on. It’s important to reach out for help even if you’re feeling helpless. You can also try to find something to occupy your mind with like writing, playing with a pet, etc. Know that you are not alone, and there are people who can and want to help you. If you would like to talk to a peer, you could contact someone in newspaper club.

Finding new friends isn’t always an easy thing. Making friends takes time and effort, especially making good friends. You don’t necessarily have to build a whole group of friends immediately, you can start by just making one or two friends. If you enjoy someone’s company, then you should pursue that friendship. Don’t be afraid of someone thinking you’re annoying for trying to pursue a friendship (they most likely don’t). If you had a friend group in middle school, reflect on how you made those friends and put those skills to work. There are other people out there in your same position, everyone’s just trying to find their place. You aren’t alone no matter how much it may seem that way.</span></p><p> </p><p><em><span style=font-weight:400>I need help with procrastination. Can you guys help me?</span></em></p><p> </p><p><span style=font-weight:400>I think we’re all guilty of procrastination more than we care to admit. No one really wants to spend time doing work now when you could do it later, but eventually later will be now. You have to remember that if you complete your work on time you won’t have to go through the stress of it all piling up on you last minute. Doing work last minute also means it may not really reflect your best abilities and you could get a lower grade on it. To avoid procrastination you should get rid of distractions like electronics, and think about all the stress you won’t be going through later.</span></p><p> </p><p><em><span style=font-weight:400>How do you kiss a girl well- Al Kaholic</span></em></p><p><span style=font-weight:400> </span></p><p><span style=font-weight:400>Bring her Hershey’s kisses instead.</span></p></div><div class=article-post><div class=post-info><hr class=post-end><ul class=tags><i class="fas fa-tags fa-fw"></i><li><a href=/%20/tags/other>#other</a></li><li><a href=/%20/tags/btw-news>#btw-news</a></li><li><a href=/%20/tags/column>#column</a></li></ul><p><i class="fas fa-file-alt fa-fw"></i>694

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Oh how those poor grades do fare.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Finals did harm once beautiful scores,</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And no longer are all of  the GPA’s fours. </span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">I must admit.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">My grades took a hit.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Thankful for a weighted grade, </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">As my A’s slowly fade.</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">But one must turn away from the blight,</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And look toward the light.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Because the new semester is upon us;</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And the great return of the A+</span></p>

<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Yes, this time my sole fixation lies within the whole creation</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Of my dull assigned dictation within this week’s short duration.</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">With this sudden inspiration—this completionist inclination,</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Which finds itself amid temptation—laziness will meet cessation.</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This time I’ll terminate the frustration—the stressed induced aggravation—</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Quote me on this acclimation: Last Minute and I have cut relation!</span></p>

I come in the hushed whispers, telling you you’re never going to be good enough. I come because I know you’ll never need me the way I so desperately need you. How I feed off your fear. Your insecurities. Your mood. How I need you in the ways I quicken your breath and the shaking of your voice. The panic in your heart and the utter feeling of no control. I need you in selfish ways because nothing I ever say is true, but because you’ve known me for so long you blindly let me take the wheel. I come to scare away your friends because in the end you’ll always have me. I come to tell you how you’ll never be enough, I take your hope and I shatter your dreams because it’s only fair that you share your reflection with me. You’ll see me in the way your lips trimble as you look in the mirror, noticing every imperfection. You’ll hug me close when you crumble on the bathroom floor in a puddle of regret and miscommunication. You’ll shake my hand when the semester starts and I introduce my friends. Procrastination waiting outside your door, depression falling on your floor, anger and pride will shake the walls. I’ll shove you in a corner then run and hide, we’ll play a game, us against you. And when you finally break, when your mind is numb and you’ve got nothing left for us to take, we leave you alone. Alone in your mind, killing yourself a thousand times; because you’ll never truly be rid of me. I’ll always creep back in when you least expect it. You can lock your doors and cover your windows but you can never shut off my voice playing on repeat. Laughing and calling you fat, ugly, stupid, worthless. My friends will join in and you’ll drown all over again, because in the end, don’t I always win?</p></div><div class=article-post><div class=post-info><hr class=post-end><ul class=tags><i class="fas fa-tags fa-fw"></i><li><a href=/%20/tags/creative-writing>#creative-writing</a></li></ul><p><i class="fas fa-file-alt fa-fw"></i>343

<p>Through the eyes of anxiety…</p>
<p>I come in the dark, when you least expect me and never asked for me. I come in the hushed whispers, telling you you’re never going to be good enough. I come because I know you’ll never need me the way I so desperately need you. How I feed off your fear. Your insecurities. Your mood. How I need you in the ways I quicken your breath and the shaking of your voice. The panic in your heart and the utter feeling of no control. I need you in selfish ways because nothing I ever say is true, but because you’ve known me for so long you blindly let me take the wheel. I come to scare away your friends because in the end you’ll always have me. I come to tell you how you’ll never be enough, I take your hope and I shatter your dreams because it’s only fair that you share your reflection with me. You’ll see me in the way your lips trimble as you look in the mirror, noticing every imperfection. You’ll hug me close when you crumble on the bathroom floor in a puddle of regret and miscommunication. You’ll shake my hand when the semester starts and I introduce my friends. Procrastination waiting outside your door, depression falling on your floor, anger and pride will shake the walls. I’ll shove you in a corner then run and hide, we’ll play a game, us against you. And when you finally break, when your mind is numb and you’ve got nothing left for us to take, we leave you alone. Alone in your mind, killing yourself a thousand times; because you’ll never truly be rid of me. I’ll always creep back in when you least expect it. You can lock your doors and cover your windows but you can never shut off my voice playing on repeat. Laughing and calling you fat, ugly, stupid, worthless. My friends will join in and you’ll drown all over again, because in the end, don’t I always win?</p>
