Surviving Depression

SOML

Depression is a side effect of life
You can’t understand it
Until you can not stand your own presence
In an empty room.
You feel like someone else deserved your life
And not you
And you’d kill to be someone else
To be no one else.

It’s when everything
Seems to be exhausting you.
No matter how much sleep you get
Or how much coffee you drink
Or how long you lie down,
Something inside you
Seems to have given up
And you feel your soul is tired.

It isn’t always at 3am
Sometimes it hits you at 3pm
When you are with your friends
And you are halfway through a laugh.
On some days
You feel like you have been to hell
Met Satan
And given your soul away.

It’s like drowning
Except
You can see everyone else around you breathing.
There is no greater battle
Thank the fight…
