Set Them Free

By Rachael


Puppet strings shackled onto your wrists,

This lethal grip of depression,

It indulged itself in your possession.

Its sick sadistic tempting ways,

Like a cigarette to a smoker.

The darkness, as your nicotine,

The cloud nine, mirroring self-harm,

Each crucial to your estate of serene,

In a condition were your nothingness could begin.

Sucking you in for its grit of numb; for you are owned.

Until you have smoke needed to be blown.

Though your fragile self couldn’t withstand,

The emotions being overflown,

So you take another puff,

When the tough gets going,

And your times get rough.

This poem expresses a common problem in society today. It inspired me to write this gift poem for you which you may keep as your own:


As depression pulls your strings
silly puppet with mood swings
you're lured by addictive things
that won't mend your broken wings.

Just let the emotions out...set them free. If we will just keep it, then it would be truly lead to depression- a state which you mentioned as something owning us and we can't control it.
There's a lesson in it.
Nice piece!

Loved it! So intense and I loved how you involved other addictions including self harm and comparing it into depression. Really amazing! 100/100
