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.
