My depression

I listen to sad songs,
while bathing in tears.
I stay up all night,
and sleep when day nears.

I hope for my laughter,
but don't think it will come.
I have trouble thinking,
and people call me dumb.

I want to be happy,
but I can't find the way.
I've always been unhappy,
while my life fades away...

    I've just read your poem and am glad to say that it's a wonderful one, but sorry to say that it has left me with a lump in my throat. It's a very, very sad poem.
    You are only 17 but you seem to carry a mountain of sadness in your bosom.
    'I want to be happy,

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
