Depression Poem by Lauren White


Rating: 4.8

Depression is like a tidal wave pulling you further in
You don't feel upto facing anyone or anything

Depression is a huge emphasis on feeling sad and low
You feel like you're in a dark place with nowhere else to go

Depression is like you're falling deeper into a black hole
Your mind feels violated and as though you have no control

Depression is having little energy or lack of motivation
You feel tired and don't want to engage in conversation

Depression is used in the wrong context by naive people
They dont understand the seriousness of how it affects people

Depression is isolation, withdrawel, low self-esteem and more
You will never understand it unless you've been through it before

I appreciate the matter-of-fact and frank nature of this write. I think it also has a nice flow, and the last two lines are the strongest. Thx for this write! I wrote various poems on mental-illness, perhaps if you have time you ill be able to peruse my own? Blessings! NS

I felt this as I read it. Great job. Also, ignore the personwho said they laughed at it, as they've obviously nevver had depression or gone through anything.
