Caught Within My Depression

Well I feel the well of depression within
And have hidden it from my family and kin
See I have issues with how I’m perceived
And there are thoughts, upon which I grieve

As I was asked if I was suicidal
When they worked out, that I was an immortal idol
Now I know that some immortalize themselves
Before they hang up their hat and put their cards on the shelf

But I am not one of them, as I honour life
No matter what trouble I find within my strife
See my heart echoes the written word
And I understand! that I am heard

See life is precious in every way
And I live for each moment of the day
Now the medicine, I’m on may make me sleepy
And in my heart! I feel it weeping

As depression is a hard card to face
And I hold my head with such, disgrace
But with this gift, I give to share
There is my hope that someone out there may care

As some depressions may lead to suicide
As the world around them collides
In my heart I seemed so hollowed
As I walk towards the world of tomorrow

Melancholy, thoughts conclude in time
Passionate verse bound within rhyme
Some might even understand
To gather forth with gentle hand

As one who knows depression and also as a trained (military) suicice intervention officer, I know that depression should never be ignored, denigraded and should be accepted and treated as an illness by those who suffer from it and those who care for the sufferers.

It's a tough battle to conquer, my friend. Be well and God bless.
