This Huge Asteroid

Word of the Day Challenge – Soliloquy

(Artwork borrowed from Kira’s Sunday Scribbles)

It’s been a few years since this

huge asteroid called depression

struck my planet.

It caused a huge crater in my soul

robbed my world of it’s colours

and left me feeling lonely.

I felt unspeakable mental agony

trying and hoping to get rid

of this huge burden no one saw.

I felt the need to deterge myself of it

it felt like an untreated snake bite,

the venom slowly killing me.

I wanted to talk about this problem

but ended up talking to walls

they name it soliloquy.

My world was literally all

black and white

until one day I chose to end it.

I decided to move this huge asteroid,

I tried to move it with force

well that didn’t work out.

I tried to call for help

people ended up laughing at me,

that didn’t work as well.

Then I tried to move it away with

my strong will and determination

the heavy asteroid budged.

I kept moving it away from me

farther and farther, didn’t stop until

my world and life got back it’s colours


The asteroid of depression

can strike anyone, anytime.

But it is up to us whether or not

we want to collect our pieces together


I would like to dedicate this post to all our brothers and sisters out there who are silently suffering mental pain and agony.

So many of them are alone in this fight and yet many others don’t realise that they are suffering from it.

The factors that trigger depression can be anything.

Let us help them while we still can.
