Depression/Mental Health

Poem 2

You can't see me but I am here

Ready to take over your mind, body and soul.

I show up unexpectedly and unwanted and leave whenever I want.

I control you and make you cry, isolate, sad, angry, confused and really not knowing what to do or which way to turn and unable to talk to anyone.

I cause you to feel shame, unstable and unmotivated.

I cause you to feel inadequate.

I discourage you from getting help at the slightest attempt.

I battle, battle, battle your mind at the most inopportune moment and

know you all too well.

You will not talk about ME and will do anything to hide or deny ME

but I am here and always will be until you properly address ME

and say it loud that It Is Okay to feel this way
