When Faced With Depression…

8 comments

Depression is a major issue that many people face. Depression can cause physical and mental issues to a person. A lot of people don’t take depression seriously. Some people think it is just a temporary feeling. A feeling that will go away “eventually”.  My depression lasted for years. Sometimes I feel it creeping back up, but then I attempt to keep myself busy by writing. Writing has really helped with my depression.

This is a song/poem I wrote a few years ago that is themed around depressions and the things people do to “temporarily” alleviate it:

Getting ready to take flight

Bottles straight to the head, I just might

Wanna get high, like a kite

So roll me a blunt and pass me the light

Ciroc, white

Yeah, that’s right

Like Kendrick say,

Don’t kill my vibe tonight

So I’m doing this solo

Since you only live once, YOLO

Might fall in love with that coco

Super crazy, Loco

Might pop one of them XO’s

Go pass my limit, overdose

Time travel, coast to coast

Thoughts in my head on overload

Anxiety and depression

premonition and stressing

Truth be told, confessing

But I still hide, suppressing

Addressing, expressing

Change subjects, digressing 

Moving forward, progressing

But I hold on, obsessing.

If you are ever feeling depressed, please seek help. Nothing is worse than keeping your emotions bottled up. You are not in this alone.

  1. Love this! I definitely battle with depression but I’ve been testing out different outlets to help me through. Also finally talked to my doctor about it. So I’m contemplating therapy just to help nudge me into a better positive track. We definitely are not alone and I’m so glad more and more people are talking about it So people are more likely to seek help as they need it.

  2. I went through depression while struggling with my eating disorder & I admit that even though I can better manage it now, it sometimes gets a little hard to not let it take over my well being. I still struggle sometimes but I choose not to let it consume me cause I do know I deserve happiness. We all do. Thank you so much for sharing your poem, you’ve described the feeling so perfectly.
