I often feel sad.
I know it’s not that.
It’s a weird kind of feeling,
my mood…’s just flat

There isn’t a reason,
this feeling comes on.
Its like a switch is flicked
and suddenly everything’s wrong.

I question my existence
and what it is for.
Is this life worth this darkness?
I’m really not sure.

If I hold onto life,
for just one more day.
Would anything change
or would I feel the same way.

I feel isolated.
I often feel trapped.
This horrible feeling,
my energy is sapped.

No-one really understands.
No-one knows how I feel.
Without a physical sign,
nothing can ever be real.

Can’t you see I’m drowning.
In self loathing and hate.
Is my soul redeemable?
Or is it to late?

I will try to hold on,
for just one more day.
I’ll go get some help.
I hope these feeling go away.

They say its depression.
With the right meds they can mend
These dark lonely feelings,
so my life need not end.

Please don’t give up on your relatives and friends.
When they start to withdraw and often offend.
They are still your loved ones….inside and out.
Its this horrible illness that makes them lash out.
