    Depression's Dark Fog

    2 years ago

    This is a poem about the mental illness, depression. It explains how hard it is to see the positive side of life when you're stuck in a depressive state. It describes some of the feelings and emotions that come along with depression and how difficult it is to be stuck feeling hopeless and sad.

    Depression Sucks

    2 years ago

    It is very difficult to explain depression to someone who hasn't experienced it. Often someone will ask me what I'm depressed about.. It isn't usually caused by anything external. It is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain that makes everything seem terrible.

    Smiling Through the Pain

    Depression can be deadly. If someone you know shows signs of being depressed, please don't take it lightly. Show them that you care, don't assume that they already know... Check up on them... Let them know that you're there for them.

    I feel

    2 years ago

    This poem is about empathy and how it can be a curse but it can also be a gift. It's not easy to be this way because it's hard enough to sort out my own feelings. On the other hand, a lot of what's wrong with the world is that too many people lack empathy. Empathy isn't something that can be taught.

    Maybe Someday

    Most adults have a job, a car, a house and a career... She didn't have those things. She had mental illness and disease called "Hashimotos" that prevent her from working and leading a normal life. It's not fair to her three sons... If only she could be normal.
