Here goes my #fiftyword story:

Title:Teenager's Dilemma: An Educational Malpractice:A* Agony


Depression crept in; a practiced thief indeed. 

Sneaking in through the cracks of inkling dark, it kept her running round in circles before cornering her.

Still oblivious, she stumbled, bound by the murky night.

Unawareness was grave.Crumbling amongst the jigsaw of realization and despair, the rat-race stole her life.

Thank you for reading!!!

You paint a good picture of what it feels like too be in in that dark place and it's something people should know and remember, especially with teens. Sad story, but beautiful.


Thank you so much @anikekirsten.These days our education system puts more pressure on the brain than improve our intellect.

You've amazed me with your personification of depression...

A practiced thief, indeed! Sneaking in... the darkness, the rat race...

Beautifully done! Congratulations!




Thank you so much...as a teenager myself, I feel strongly about this.


I hope you won't let depression overcome you!

You have a gift for writing, and the world needs to hear your voice. :D

Wow, @khadija14, this little story really blows me away. You've used such beautiful words to describe a condition and state of mind that is so painful.
