To The Empty Hearts & Numb Souls.

Numbness | Emptiness | The Inner Void

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

I am not angry,
I am not sad,
I have no questions,
I need no answers,
For, I am numb.

I can’t cry,
I can’t smile,
I can’t laugh,
I can’t giggle,
For, I feel numb.

I don’t argue,
I don’t think,
I don’t talk,
I can’t fight,
For, I feel numb and
Somehow, I just know
Being ‘numb’ is worse
Than anything else!

    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
