Depression clings to all of our minds,
feeding on our negative thoughts inside.
Growing with every bad emotion in us,
Learning all of our weaknesses.

Slowly it consumes the mind,
making us nothing but an emotional mess,
Revealing to us the true world,
and making us feel like something less.

Depression eats away our happiness,
replacing it with never-ending pain.
Sorrow then comes along,
and anger and hate is what we gain.

Depression makes us question our lives,
and everyday we wake up and ask “why?”
Why must we be the victims of such a terrible fate?
leaving nothing, not even an open gate,
in which we can escape.

We struggle to escape this dreadful thing,
but as long as we continue to let ourselves fall and give in,
that depression will always be here,
and shall always remain.
