Behind A Smile - Poem by Nicholas James Warburton

I wish I could die right now,
Couldn't even tell all times I've thought of how,
My head is a mess,
With more suicidal thoughts than links in a wire mesh,
I've forgotten what it's like feeling like anything,
Because nothing has become everything,
All the times I've cried,
Get me no further away from when I tried.
People don't know behind my smile,
That I just want my pain to go even for a little while.

    This poem evokes the misery of depression. Fortunately, we have hope these days with all the resources available.10
