So many people with depression struggle to find words to paint a picture for how it feels. I humbly submit my interpretation of what it’s like to feel depressed.

At this time of year when resolutions fade into the background, the New Year-New You promises seem to lose their luster, and depression may settle in. There is hope however and the New Year holds promise but not in resolutions and goals, rather in the desire and effort to reach out to be cared for.

This poem is for you, Dear Fellow Sufferer.

Oh, depression how I loathe you. You make me feel there’s nothing I can do. You hold me down I walk through mud It’s black and dark like thick old blood. You take my spark my will to live you steal my joy and nothing give except a reason to stay in bed. At times you take my friends and nothing left to be said. Oh, depression when will you lose your grip on me? When will I finally be free? I’m tired of trudging through this mire. I’m tired of holding on by a wire. Oh, let me go return my life I cannot handle this world of strife. Why do others not see? Others not hear. You take away all I hold dear. Oh, depression how I loathe you. Let me alone, I’ve paid my due.
