sum


You're sad because you're sad.


It's psychic. It's the age. It's chemical.

Go see a shrink or take a pill,

or hug your sadness like an eyeless doll

you need to sleep.

-excerpt from sad child by Margaret Atwood

I didn't know Margaret Atwood wrote poetry either. Actually I was thinking about reading one of her novels. I think this is beautiful.
