James Elston


Being depressed is a very sad thing
I wish it on no one this sadness I feel
I would be okay if you were by my side
But you not and I wonder how can I carry on inside
Others tell me I need to be strong
But would they say that if they felt what I do
My chest has a hole in it, empty it is
My heart is not there to fill the void
I feel like a crime has been committed
No one can hurt this much without it being so
“I have got to be strong”
There is that stupid saying again
If I hear one more person tell me that I am going to snap
Being depressed can be caused by many things
This is a case of my life being stolen from me
Being depressed is a very sad thing
I wish it on no one not even me
