Depression Poem by Teens

The Other Girl

I wrote this poem because I had a lot of anger and sadness, and I just needed to let it out. Also because I felt left out and different.

I know how this feels. I'm the only girl wrestler in my home town. People look at me different, family members try and convince me wrestling is a sin. Through all my life I have had to hide...

The other Girl

The "other" girl
I may be sweet and kind,
But there is more to this girl.
I can laugh and smile,
But behind those smiles,
There is another side.

This side, nobody knows of,
I keep it locked up deep inside,
My heart is filled with anger and sadness,
Most of the time this side of me,
Makes me want to die.

It's a whole new me,
This "side" as you may call it,
Controls me and has turned me into something,
Something I never wanted to be.
It has turned me into the "other" girl

I know how this feels. I'm the only girl wrestler in my home town. People look at me different, family members try and convince me wrestling is a sin. Through all my life I have had to hide it, like I "shut and locked the door.'' This poem relates a lot to me. Keep writing poems though. It really helps!

This is exactly what I feel. I am 56 years old and am going through this. Thank you for sharing this poem. No one understands me and my illness. Friends and family have deserted me like I have an illness or disease they can catch, or is it that they don't want to hear about my illness? I feel so alone and I don't like the "other girl" when she takes over. I call her "the dark one". No one believes she exists, it's all in my head they say and think....just think positive thoughts and those negative thoughts will go away, and their excuses go on and on. I can't take much more. Why don't they believe me and show their support? Suicide is almost a daily thought. To me, that is the only way out of this pain!!

There Is Always Two Sides To Every Girl,
There's The Side That You Think You Know,
And There's The Side That You Never Knew.
