--------Fighting The Depression --------- - Poem by Shacole James

I sit here bottled up with pain
Physical pain, mental pain and a little shame
When I'm in public i seem happy
But when I'm alone there is no such word in my vocabulary
For years I've kept inside what people have said to me
These things made me sad, angry but never happy
My journey in life has been tough
While others haven't suffered half as much
The only way to deal with this pain
Is to never wake up again
But its to early to start thinking about death
Since I don't think my time is here as yet
People think in my life there is no strife
But I've been fighting for tomorrow my whole life

    nice poem.
    i know it gets tuff to see the positivity in life, but we gotta take the good with the bad, even thought it may feel like taking the bad with the bad, but we gotta keep fighting for tomorrow... for whether its better or worse, its another chance... one we have to take
