So I write poetry as a healing method for my depression. My counselor suggests instead of writing everything down as if I'm talking to someone write it as a poem. I thought it would be good to share some with my friends so perhaps… just maybe my poems could help someone else. If I get enough positive feedback I may post more. Not all like this one I do have positive ones too! Even one I wrote about diabetes! :) Here is one I wrote a few months ago when I was feeling frustrated with my depression!

Darkness rises upon me
Like a shadow replaces my soul
On the outside I may look happy
But on the inside there is just a hole

Tear full eyes each and everyday
Seaming to be for no reason at all
I want things to finally seem okay
I want someone to stop my fall

Some loved ones make it better
Some make it even worse
I know this won't be forever
But right now it feels like a curse

I'll try to focus on the good things
I wont focus on the bad
I'm frustrated with these feelings
I'm so tired of being sad!

Writing is so personal, thank You for sharing a part of yourself like this <3. I've written, it always seems to be in my darker moments when the words flow through me. I can definitely feel your pain through your words.

Every day that you wake up … Is a great day. If you just so happen to breathe, it's even a better day! I'm glad you found your outlet. Who knows, maybe one day your poetry will make it on the shelves of Barnes and Nobel ~ please remember us little people LoL

Thank You again for sharing your beautiful soul. *Hugs* Cheryl

Very nice. Glad you can do something like that to help you with whatever is going on in your life. I also have dabbled in poetry both in good times as poems to my wife and bad when I went through a period of depression myself some years ago. All I can say to you is DO NOT give up sweetie. It does get better I am proof of that. I was on meds to help and was irritable with everyone and for most part didn't care about anything and it sometimes seemed impossible but I made it through it, off meds now for some time and I can honestly say I am now the happiest I've been my whole life and I will be 50 next month and I love my life and my wife and son very much. I have been very blessed. If you would like to friend me that's fine and if you need anything even just to talk I will help any way I can. Just believe in yourself and it will all work out. Hope you have many wonderful days ahead of you.
