Depression Poem by Teens

You Didn't See The Truth In My Eyes

I've been depressed for about 2 years now, and no one found it out on their own. I had to tell them. I don't understand how they couldn't have seen it. This poem is about how I felt and what people should've seen.

The lies I tell,
the truth I cry,
the secrets I keep,
they're locked up inside.
No one will know
the hidden side of me,
how I got so low,
how I got this deep.
The people that saw,
the ones that didn't,
they all knew,
they just didn't listen.
I wanted them to ask,
to know they cared,
to know they heard
my silent cries of sadness
that didn't subside.
But they chose to look away,
to pretend like nothing was wrong.
But the cuts I made,
the blood that fell,
the smile I faked,
they were all signs
that I was not okay.
If they saw past my words,
nothing really ever came out.
The answer was in my eyes.
They say everything I feel inside.

It's a poem that truly tells my story. Some friends of mine still don't notice that I am depressed. While in my classroom, I hide my tears. But when someone notices me, I quickly dry them up. But they never realize I was crying. Only one friend of mine knows my true feelings. Keep up the good work! Such a lovely poem.
