  1. 21. Hollow

    When you can't express the agony and pain inside of you, poetry is one of the ways to get it out. I wrote this poem when I just couldn't find the meaning in anything. Everything was numb. I was paralyzed. A feeling so dreadful that I turned into an empty shell. I doubted every emotion I felt. I tried so hard to get through it all. I was broken. I no longer wanted to feel love. I just wanted the dreadful feeling to end. I hope you like it. This poem is for those you have felt like this.

    Emotions.
    Do you feel them?
    She was numb and frozen,
    Yet it dimly sparkled like a dying gem.

    When you feel empty and hollow, I feel like it's easy to feel alone. This poem helped me realize that I am not alone and that there are other people out there who struggle to feel again, who...

  3. 22. Depression Is Never Ending

    Depression seems as if it will never end.

    Depression is here every day,
    And it never goes away.
    Go away! I yell into the dark,
    As if someone is there.

  5. 23. Glance

    Sometimes I feel like I'm surrounded by people but I still feel alone. When I wrote this, I felt so alone and was crying. Tears fell as I wrote this, but I felt better after I finished.

  7. 25. Hope

    Those who go through depression or suicidal thoughts often feel hopeless. We often think there is no end to the pain we are feeling when there certainly is. This poem reassures readers that they are not alone in battling mental illness, and although there is darkness, there is also light. Even though we experience pain, there is so much that life has to offer. I want this poem to let people know there is always hope.

    Have you ever felt trapped behind metal bars,
    Or watched all your cuts turn to scars?
    Have you tried to escape the pain in your soul,
    But you just couldn't seem to fit that hole?

  8. 26. The Countdown

    I wrote this poem when I felt like I was suffocating. People told me that I will be fine, and that if I count to ten then I will feel okay. But they could never comprehend the pain that came with each second that went by. No matter how many times you count to ten, sometimes that feeling just doesn't shift.

    "Count to 10," they said,
    "Deep breaths and it will pass,
    because the feelings that consume you won't stay, and they won't last,"
    but with each and every land mine that goes off within my head,

  9. 27. Traffic Light

    My mum helped my brother through his fight with a brain tumor for over 18 years. When he did pass, she felt life wasn't worth living without him and went into a spiraling depression. No one knew what to say to her other than the usual things to support someone you love. So I thought I'd try to write what she was feeling, and I gave it to her to let her know I understood.

    • Published by Family Friend Poems April 2011 with permission of the Author.

    This traffic light inside my head
    Is always green and never red.
    My thoughts, my dreams, and all my fears,
    They all speed past my listening ears.

  20. 38. The Ending Start

    Hi. My name is Ethan Wulf. I'm chronically depressed from the death of my mother and grandfather, who was my only father figure, and I'm a very discontent person. But I try not to complain because I know nobody likes a complainer. I'm 17 and I'm sick of high school. I'm sure we've all been there, right kids? Well, I'm not much on introductions. If you really actually care to get to know me and about me, just read my poetry. Thanks for your time.
