This poem is about the things you think of when you have depression.

Why keep trying?

Why keep lying?

Why say that I'm okay

What should I say

That I'm happy


That I'm dying inside?

Why should I say I'm fine

What should I say

That nothing's wrong


That everything is crashing down?

Why keep trying?

Why keep lying?

Lying because we don't think people will understand; trying because we don't want to cause others pain, or because we are scared to take the final step. Good content, nicely put together.
