The Cry Of Our Hearts

There is a great deal of depression that has overtaken my soul,
It floods deep within, into every inch that makes me whole.
I wonder and worry of thought throughout the day,
What is to come, to my dismay.
As a flood of tears pour out of me in all my expressions,
more and more comes, more and more depression.

I assure myself everything is ok!
But who am I fooling?
Then I burst into a spirit of rage.
I have questions, and there are answers.
But I'm afraid and much too weak,
When I try to explain,
I hear I'm hearing wrong and need to be meek.
But this is how I feel, there's no wrong or right,
But as I battle with myself, I always lose the fight.

I feel intimidated sometimes by others,
But as I said "This is how I feel"
The pain in me is very real.
I lose control, my thought go wild,
and here I am only a child.
If only you knew what I thought,
If only you knew what I fought.
I need my thoughts held captive.

Oh God, assure me I'm thinking normal
and you'll help me think positive.
I'm hurting, I need you!
Please don't give up on me!
One day I will always make you smile!
Love,
Your Child

I liked this poem so much, i swear i suffer from depression but no one see's the pain deep inside no one really tries to see if there is i think, everyday its a struggle, not so much anymore but its still there, the only reason why im a little better is cause i found someone who saw the pain someone who actually cares my love. Your poem is something that i will always remember.

I liked the poem, because I think it's what my sister feels, she has to fight herself every day, so she looks normal to every one, but I think that no one really knows what she is going throuh.

I have several friends and a few relatives that have depression and anxiety. This poem was so sad. telling me, what they are going through. it's so real to them. so many think it's an act. but it's real. so real. I understand now a bit more. how they feel, what they think. My heart goes out to them.
laura

hey, this poem really expresses how i feel, being depressed isnt easy, and niether is being bi-polar so i would like to thank you for understanding me, although my feelings cant be expressed enough as it seems, however my hearts seams are still letting free of life, or at least thats what it feels like.

Ashley
i think that this poem is realy realy good and that everyone should take the time and read it.
beth
I want to thank you so much. For a long time I felt depressed and once tried to commit suicide. I managed to share this experiance with a close friend, but it upset her to know that I was going through so much she could not comprehend or understand what I was going through. I saw this poem and it spoke out to my soul. It is so hard to put what you are feeling into words, but I could relate to this poem and felt as though the words had came from me. I sent it to her and although there is no way you can get someone to understand how you arefeeling, it helped her understand how helpless I felt. It also made me feel as though I was not alone and assured me that others were going through the same thing as I was. At the darkest part of my life, I saw a light at the end of the tunnel, thankyou for making me realise I was not alone and for giving me hope! X
jasmine
Dear poet this was so touching this is the same way i feel and to read this was good I feel there are people out there going through the same thing I am going through. thank u it help me think of what i hold inside of me and not let others know whats insie of me thanks . j cruz
