This poem was inspired from a new neighbors meeting. Her teen committed suicide.

Dread and doom

follow me

Hopelessness envelops

my joy, my hopes, my dreams.

 There is no light at the end

of this tunnel it seems.

Falling, flailing into darkness

unknown. Curling into

myself so I can not be seen.

Taking the last step will

be easy for me. I know the

deep pain will subside once

I cross the forbidden line.

There my pain will be no more

Like an eagle I will soar

into the light that was hidden from me

peace will be mine eternally.

Mary, you've captured through images and words, "depression," it's a sad sickness that robs a person of their souls. The sad thing about teenagers being depressed is they can put on such a good face like all is well when they are suffering so much inside. This is a great writing and I'm sure many readers will relate to this.

Mary, You've expressed well what depression is all about, feelings of hopelessness and despair beyond belief. It is a disease that sometimes will, sadly, lead to suicide. My heart goes out to this lost soul and the family she has left behind.
Hugs, Laura

This writing is true and so deep it almost hurts. I love it. Even though we don't like to admit these thoughts to others, these thoughts frequently exist. I respect you for sharing something personal.
Thank you. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
