Depression feels like you are always living for others.
You’re constantly thinking about how others
will react to you and your choices.
People say it is just in your mind,
You can overcome it whenever you want.
Stop justifying it.
Boy, do you love excuses!
We rarely understand that mental illness is an actual illness.
I now live in fear of dying and of living
And it’s a painful way to live but I must keep
appearances for society to accept the masks I wear.
Accepting my depression seems to be a problem for most people.
I am dying inside and if I told you I just want to feel it,
You will not take that kindly.
But I need an opportunity to learn
to live with this monster I carry around.
And if you stand in my way
you will get hurt.
