Depression is not just feeling sad

Depression – In my own Words

Since I haven’t posted anything creative for a little while, I thought that I’d share this poem with you all that I wrote about what my own struggle with depression has been like and I’m sure a lot of you will be able to relate.

The night is never ending
Not the Slightest sign of sun
Slow and dragging minutes
With not one single ounce of fun

The stars have gone out around me
The clouds are closing in
I can not bear to be outside
And feel restricted in my skin

A blackness grows within me
I see black on the outside too
I’m forever falling downwards
It’s hard to find a clear way through

I long to see the daylight
To push the clouds away
I’m waiting to be rescued
From these never ending days

As always, thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed it.

Until next time,

George
