Depression Poem by Teens

I have been struggling with depression for quite some time. Being alone is the ultimate pain. The worst part is that nobody can see it. They are occupied with themselves, not seeing what someone is really feeling inside. Sometimes you wish that someone would just be there. This poem shares the feelings that many people including myself feel about being alone.

Alone In A Crowded Room

Published: March 2009

All alone in this crowded room.
My eyes meet one...another.
They do not see me for what I am.
They see the smile on my face;
The lies that I'm holding, in order to keep myself together.
They do not know the pain I feel.

Their smile is real.

So I am alone in this crowded room;
Waiting for someone to see through;
To save me from myself from the loneliness...
that has overcome me;
controlled me.
I am a slave to this feeling;
Waiting for something better,
Suffering in myself,
Needing a savior.

Well when I was 5 my dad died. He died of a stroke. My mom lost it and was put into a mental facility. I started cutting in the 3rd grade. I lost it and it was the only thing to take the pain away. I continued cutting to 5th grade then it started to become noticeable. I stopped. I resumed in 6th grade and went to my 8th grade year when my mom found me passed out in the bathroom with blood spilling out of my arm. I was then placed in a mental facility. I am now a freshman in high school. I am anorexic/bulimic. I haven't thrown up in about a month and I've been eating regularly. I have a boyfriend but my world is still crashing around me. I've been alone in a crowded room or at least I feel like I am. I was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder and anxiety depression. I'm telling my boyfriend tomorrow. I'm scared....

I just read your story.. Loosing your dad at a young age must of been really hard. And I know you probably won't like me after I say this but I'm glad your mom found you. I'm glad that you got help.

Anyways I just wanted to say that my heart goes out to you.
