Depression: A Struggle Within


As I sit here in this chair
I realize I need to care
About who I am
And start giving a damn
Nowhere
Sucking for air
Stuck in a black pit
Refuse another hit
Going through the day
All I do is play
Expressions denied
just gonna hide
I hear the symphony inside my head
Now I begin to dread
What is going to happen in my life
Will it be filled with utter strife
As I fight the struggle within
My mind inside begins to spin
Depression has begun to feed
The soul slowly starts to bleed

First poem...a solid entry, and one I relate too all too well. A fatal disease, that nearly killed my sister and would have done the same for me...oh yes, I know it all too well.

Good descriptive poetry of a current mood/dilemma.

I have a piece I will shortly post on serious depression, but the only way to attempt cure is exactly what you are doing in this piece.  To analyse the feelings and make a decision in regard to but independent to, your feelings.

This is an extremely good piece of poetry, in which you show that to remedy any situation you first have to recognize it.

The moment created this second, is a  moment that's going to last.
It lives the full spectrum of time, the future, the present and past.

Hello! ~ and welcome to 'Pip Place'.

Depression can be the result of anger that is not expressed outwardly, but turned within.

Perhaps your anger could be expressed outwardly through your poetry. Vent away, Nameless One! As 'they' say, an empty house is better than a bad tennant! We're 'hear' to listen!

Depression can be a debilitating state of being. I have known moments of despair, but life has a way of surprising us with wonderful moments that lie 'round the bend!

Giving you a warm, welcoming hug,

EA

Thank you all for your support. This was from last year and my first poem ever. It was an assignment by my drawing teacher to go along with pastel portraits that we did.
Unfortunately I moved from Kansas to Oklahoma. She still has it hanging in their library at the school otherwise I would have put that up also. At the time I was finally becoming smart to stop using pot and start taking care of myself. Your words mean a lot to me so thanks again.

These words mean a lot to us.

Depression can be something to probably all mankind.  Actually, even life outside of humans know this very thing.  You are to be commended, to quit using a substance that only increases the condition.

Welcome to Passions.

I know you will find it within yourself to stay quite strong, and to find your way.  

And please, check your email
for a very special greeting.

I enjoyed your poem. I struggled for years with that particular ailment, and I've only recently come to terms with it. For you...

Its a fragile line we walk
one foot planted on the slppery slope
one foot poised to fall
but all I want in life
is just to hang on.

Depression has begun to feed

It does indeed do that... sapping our energy, our will, our very selves.

Welcome to Passions... I look forward to reading more of your work!
