    What is this feeling that is taking me over
    I have so much that makes me happy
    But I still sit here depressed
    Depressed cause I don’t have my love
    As he sits there on the other side
    So far from me, why am I depressed
    Even if it had nothing to do with him
    Even if I never knew who he was
    As I sit here with this feeling
    I can’t tell you why, for I have no clue
    So many people have depression
    So many people are depressed
    Some of us sit here with no clue
    No clue why we have this feeling
    As this feeling sets deep inside us
    Just eating us away, we hold onto happiness
    But at times it just eats what we hold
    Why does there have to be depression
    Is there not enough wrong already
    Do we not feel enough pain and hurt
    Do we not lose loved ones and cry
    Yes, now here comes depression
    Some people are strong to deal with it
    Some people rather take a hold of it
    But yet some of us just can’t deal
    For this feeling, is not a disease
    But this feeling kills so many
    For those of us that can’t get over
    We rather end the pain and sadness
    Why should this feeling be death to many
    As I sit here wondering what is wrong with me
    I am young; I have so much to live for
    I just want to escape, far from this feeling
    I want to leave my body behind
    Leave all those feelings I know to well
    Will this be the end of me yet
    I live everyday afraid to feel, to open up
    For those of us that open up
    We are able to release the pain inside
    But for those who are trapped in our emotions
    We rather just die, no more life, no more pain
    But we will survive, we will be strong
    For there is more to live for then we know
    We can’t give up now, not ever
    But we will give up, to end it all
    To stop this pain, pain we know all so well
    If I were to end it now, would I be missed
    Would people love me just the same
    Or will they see that I was weak
    Or see me as just another case
    For now I lay six feet under
    Feeling nothing at all, no pain, no sadness
    Am I missed, am I loved, did they forget me
    No more pain no more depression
    I am free from all of my feelings
    But I am alive, breathing, taking a hold of life
    The reason I won’t give up on myself, on life itself
    MY SON, he keeps me fighting, keeps me alive

    you are so cute for ur feeling

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
