Depression Isn'T Obvious Suicide Is - Poem by Amy Louise Kerswell

Depression isn't obvious but suicide is.
My pain nobody sees.
My my mangled body they shall see.
My head was all but a mess.
Depression overtaking me.
Suicide was to be my bid for freedom.
Becuase deppression isn't obvious but suicide is.

Depression is never obvious even when its staring them in the face.
But now suicide will be obvious how can it not?
Now my life is too much to bear.
Suicide I shall commit.
Now its obvious but its all too late.

    Excellent, heart felt writing. The pain, hurt, hopelessness jumps off the page along with the Insight, Intelligence, Compassion and Caring. Keep writing. (Report)Reply

    I hear you and wish to hear more from you,
    climb up from the well, you've fallen into.
    Find your voice and scream out, rage if you can
    than stand and speak out again and again.

    be well
