My depression comes in waves. Right now im drowning again.


I sent a letter to my mom
It read,
Times are good
As time moves on.
I think,
I’m better off
Just staying lost
 these echoes anger me.

The letter back
I threw away
I couldn’t bare
To see what she’d say

My best friend
Thinks that
Ive lost my mind
I told him that
Its mine to find.
And that it may be
True
I might have
Gone insane
But don’t feel bad
Cause you’re not to blame.
The sad fact is that
I’ve been this way
For far too long
And I cant change
To save my life…
Not even to save my life.

I can really associate with this. Sometimes I'm up in the clouds and beaming with life, and others, I'm so far away from everything and everyone. But the Sun usually cheers me up, and it's getting about that time of year agin now :)

I loved the title of this, it's what drew me to read it. I really agree with it too. I'd much rather be how I am as opposed to 'normal'...life's much more intresting this way!

I liked the flow of your poem, it read itself almost, and the ending I felt inside myself too, the not being able to change, even to help yourself in a big way. We can know the changes we need to make very well, but that doesn't mean that we can do it. Though I think sometimes that just when we least expect it, we can actually really surprise ourselves.

I guess im still waiting to be surprised. I hope it happens sooner rather than later.

I can identify with this, as well. Some of my poetry is very similar in subject matter. Nice one, YuperMan.

When the baby birds leave the nest they spread their wings and must fly or die.

Dare I say...
you've become too familiar with that being. It's an easy slide for you. Dramatic poem.

Your moment of heroism is actually the beginning of the poem, not hurting your mother.

The good news is, you have a best friend.

All this makes you interesting and not boring.
Cuz there ain't much worse than being boring.
