I have written a short poem about Depression to kickstart my poem month on the topic of mental health. At the bottom of the post is my schedule for the month.
For those of you who don’t know I have had clinical Depression since 2011. I wouldn’t consider this my best poem but thought I would share my ideas. Hope you enjoy and I welcome any feedback.
Am I chosen, chosen for death ?
I have been fighting for so long,
Can I stop and prolong my last breath.
Out of my mind with distress
It is time to open up and finally confess
I am lonely, sad and frightened
Losing all willpower and social skills
I must stop these feelings being heightened
It’s time for therapy again, to start to feel
To welcome happiness and joy
To slay the toxic people out
Instead of engaging in arguments, screams and shouts.
Now I must work to stand tall instead of exuberating excuses and being coy.
Like what you see?
