Despair - Poem by Poet Teop

Even though i am surrounded by people
I feel so lonely and helpless
The state of depression is intense
It steals my breath
My entire life essence

I walk out amongst others
The mask is protecting me
I have to be confident
Not showing any fear
Or signs of slowing down

I'm at a loss for words
I cannot describe it
I really wonder if there's
A place for me here
Cause i'm lost in this world

    An insightful depiction of the suffocating pain of depression - the weeping of soul without comfort, well articulated and nicely penned with conviction. A lovely poem indeed. Thanks for sharing Teop. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
