Depression

Depression

A Poem by TogetherAgain
"

Depression makes me see the bad rather than the good. This is what it's like. This is depression.

"
You can stare in my eyes
tell me to 
cheer up
hug me and kiss me
tell me I mean
the world to you
yet I won’t
feel 

thing.
You say I don’t
see the good things
or all the potential
I have to offer.
I do, but depression 
alters my perception.
Depression
makes me see the bad
rather than the good
I may think
I'm winning
until depression
grabs me 
by the shoulders
and tells me
I’m losing.
Don't tell me to cheer up for you
because I
can fake a smile any day.

Dang. This was very emotional. It hit home more for me because I can relate to this. Very, very good job.
