Depression - Poem by Free Faller

Life is all lies
Borrowed for cries
Tears are all shy
Like wings that won't fly

Like eyes that won't see
Like lips that won't speak
Like lungs that won't breathe
Like freedom that's not free

It won't just pass through
It is really stuck on you
Like glue
Like gum on a shoe

It's like an eclipse
Let the words pass through your lips
Let the tears in your eyes stick
Making the stress in your mind slip

I know it's like being raped
Like all your thoughts are being taped
Like you have to keep your fists shaped
Like the tears in you have turned to rain

Well this whole thing is not your fault
Your life is not at a stop
There is a way to crack this vault
There is a word you could call

Your life is not all flat
There's a chance you could catch
There is a way, that is a fact
Depression is what caused all that

    This poem is so....real. It reflets life in an actual proof of depression. I like this. I want to write a poemlike this, but I cannot write down the horrors of depression without murdering my poem. S good job girl.

    Very sad the depression it seems...........Free you are free to do meditation to at least minimize the pain.As far as we grab the worldly things, the flow of suffering remains? (Report) Reply
