Poem about depression and its not ok

Depression is real, especially when your heart always feels

You keep pushing on through, but everyone keeps getting to you

They just don’t know, how it is to always be alone

Life feels like it can’t be won, you just keep coming undone

All you can do is your best, though you feel you keep failing every test

Even though you always care, when you need someone nobody’s there

You always ask why do I try, you know it’s hard to be alive

Everyone says you need to change, but you know it’ll just be the same

You keep saying it has to get better, yet you’re constantly under the weather

You have a huge heart, but it’s always in the dark

You want someone you can talk to, but then say what would they know

People say you need help, but you have your doubts

You never tell the truth, because you don’t know what people will think of you

Yes depression is hard to overcome, why can’t the world show more love

People need to be kind; you never know what is on someone’s mind

Instead of thinking that life is a mistake, please know life can be great

Please know you’re not alone in this way, so it’s ok
