depression-a poem

it seaps into your core
into your soul
you cant breathe
you cant do anything
but be engulfed by the blackness
the blackness that is depression
it tears you apart
rips into every fibre of your being
tells you your worthless
a nothing and nobody
and you believe it
even though other people tell you otherwise
you find it hard to hear their words
and believe them
depression takes everything
everything you know
and turns your life
upside down and inside out
until you cant take it
life seems unbearable
and so you wonder
how will I cope?
how will I get through this?
What will make it better?

      1. yoga has helped me a lot, more effective than meditation, i highly recommend. Yoga with Adriene is great on YouTube and it’s free, you can it at your home.
