Teen Mental Illness Poem

Depression

Most people don't understand the extremity of depression. This doesn't even begin to describe what I go through every day. But, it's at least a glimpse into my mind.

Screams Drag Me Under

default © more by Tiffany Lane

Published: August 2011

This can't be real
This pain I feel
I'm in a dark cave
All alone never to be saved

Won't somebody find me?
Open my eyes, let me see
Bring me back into the light
Into happiness and what's right

I hide myself under a pile of lies
So no one sees the secrets behind these immortal eyes

No one understands and they never will
Why my life is like a big long bill
I have to pay the price of living
It's myself that I am giving

Depression is what drags me under
Why can't they hear my screams I wonder
I'm screaming to you
Please help me through

There has to me more than this
Somewhere out there, there must be bliss
But until I find it I am here
In this pool of unforgiving tears.
