Never Goes Away

Never Goes Away

A Poem by Abdul Batin Osman Bey
"

about that underlying feeling of depression

"

I feel as if my life is empty

So let this be my last testament

A suicide note to nobody

 

All of my life I’ve wrestled with this feeling

A nagging urge that never goes away

No matter what I accomplish

This feeling never goes away

 

I close myself off

Shut down the outside

Why can’t breath like everyone else?

 

All of my life I’ve wrestled with this feeling

A nagging urge that never goes away

No matter what I accomplish

This feeling never goes away

 

I want to destroy this image of god

Even though I’ll never be forgiving

Repeating the event for all eternity

 

I’m white knuckling life

Clinging to the essence inside me

My cross I must bare it

All of my life I’ve wrestled this feeling

A nagging urge that never goes away

No matter what I accomplish

This feeling never goes away

 

Never goes away

Never goes away

Never goes away

Never ever goes away
