Depression strikes again

Depression strikes again

A Poem by Lenny Hart

About my personal battle with mental health

Today I feel the depression lurking inside my mind.
The search for the normality of me I still struggle to find .
I hate this feeling of craving death .
Just come and take my last breath .
I will never end my life by suicide .
But when death comes knocking I will not fear I will not hide .
Each day I battle to cope with what chaos is inside my head .
Being alive but wishing I was dead .
As I get older the pain grows to .
Where , why and how I get this depression from I have no clue .
I have my life lines , the reasons why I fight .
I have 4 kids , I’m here to show them right .
They keep me alive no matter hard life can get.
I love them unconditionally, no matter how I’m treat .
So today is bad the darkness is here .
The pain grows inside , the darkness , the fear .
Let’s hope these pills will pull me through.
Anyone with depression knows this darkness too .
Life is good , life is a gift .
Depression is evil hidden inside , i try but can never shift .
