Description :  SIPHILILE NTUSII'm sitting on the cold floor of my room, doors locked rocking myself back and forth. The voices in my head don't seem to stop. I look at my wrist and the broken mirror next to me, i push them away and let out a loud cry. It feels like i am walking in the night alone with the rain hiding my tears. It's like i'm walking in the dawn.The world asleep and dreaming while i'm awake dealing with these demons. It's like i have fallen into a deep abyss. Even when I try scrambling up the sides, it's no good whenever I try to get up an overwhelming feeling of nothingness pulled me back down again.Life is so long and i am aching for the end.••••••••HLOBISILE VUNDLA" Dali zikhon'inkomo kiniUzozenzani?Wenono wamiDali ngakunik'igqubhelaWenono wamiUzozenzani?
