Depression Poem

Overcoming Anger And Depression

Hi, my name is Ryann. I'm twenty-seven years old. I've been divorced ten months now, and it has been a tough road. Going through betrayal hurts. It is during this time I found poetry. Now I wish to share some of this battle with you.

The War Within You


Published by Family Friend Poems February 2018 with permission of the author.

Confusion sets in.
My mind is a blur.
Overthinking too much,
So hard to endure.

My thoughts go dark.
Personality turns black.
I'm unleashing a beast
I can no longer hold back.

I unleashed a beast within,
Stalking my prey.
As time went on,
My dark personality turned gray.

I conquered my aggression
And cast it aside.
Realized it's depression
That's been lurking inside.

The most powerful battle
That one can endure
Is the one with yourself,
Of that I'm so sure.
