What is this mental condition 'depression' that has befriended me so well ?

I feel part of the belonging yet I do'nt really belong here

Is this person really me ?

She seems so different, she seems lost in the confusion of this illness

I want to find my way out of here

I want to be away from this 'depression' and be myself again...

 

someday soon..

who knows..

maybe.

I think that depression can bring out good works of art. Painters, poets, musicians.... History shows this. I can relate to your poem. Take care, Tony.

Hi Bernadette,

Nice work on this one! It really resonated with me as I suffer from depression too and most of my poetry is tainted with the intensity of it.

It's always helpful to one's soul to see that someone else understands how it feels. Thank-you and well done!
