As kids we’re lead to believe,You need a reason to be sad.
And we’re taught by society,
That it’s okay to make fun of,
Those who are.
I once asked,“How do I explain depression,
To people who’ve NEVER experienced it?”
Just because you’re sad doesn’t mean you’re depressed.
Depression is the feeling of drowning,While everyone around you,
Can clearly breathe.
Like walking down the streetAnd it suddenly decides to swallow you whole.
That nightmare of that dark creatureYou never knew but were scared of.
The coolness of a blade as it slices your skin,Is what some people rely on
To take away the pain.
It causes physical pain,But mentally,
It’s as if everything bad
Trickles away with every single
Drop of crimson.
Everything wrong and cruelFades away in that moment in time.
People don’t realize that it’s notCowardness that pushes
People toward suicide.
They are brave.
Knowing you’re leaving and never coming back.Knowing you’re hurting those that care.
Knowing you’re doing this and won’t know what happens next.
Walking into this blindly and being able to push the fear away.
They aren’t cowards looking for a way out,They are brave enough to move on.
As I was once wisely told,“No one wants to die,
But everyone wants to go to heaven.”
