  1. 21. Tiauna

    I wrote this poem for my best friend, Tiauna, when she tried to tell me nothing was wrong with her, but I saw the emptiness in her eyes. She was able to fool everyone around her: her family, teachers, people at church, and people at school. But she could never fool me. I wrote this to let her know that someone saw beneath the smile and that I was here for her even in her darkest days. Even when nobody else could tell she was hurting, I was going to be there for her.

    She couldn't help but realize
    That she was slowly starting to change.
    Maybe it was the look hidden in her eyes
    Or her actions becoming so strange.

  2. 22. The New Me

    • By J. Dezz
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2014

    I am a living, breathing piece of art; I am proof that things can change, and I am proud to be the new me.

    Sometimes it gets better.
    Sometimes you heal.
    Sometimes my eyes get wetter
    Waiting for these scars to heal.

  3. 23. I Have A Secret

    • By Stephanie Croston
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2014

    When I wrote this poem, I was depressed. That was my secret. Being a teen and having depression isn't the easiest thing to talk to people about. So instead of talking about my problem, I wrote poems to help me get through everything.

    I have a secret.
    It tears me apart
    Each and every day,
    Making its way to my heart.

  4. 24. No More

    • By Caroline
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2016

    I was depressed and wanted to go through no more, so I wrote this poem, intending for it to be a song.

    My eyes are heavy,
    My mind is sore.
    I don't think
    I can take this anymore.

  5. 25. All I Feel Is Darkness

    • By Lindsay
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2017

    I have been battling with depression for about a month now, and every day get up I feel like I have to reassure myself I'm gonna be okay just so I can go to school. I decided to write this because writing calms me down and makes me want to stop cutting.

    Darkness closes in around me
    As I lay my head to sleep,
    Thinking of the sadness that I weep.
    Every tear shed is a fear forgotten.

    I had been struggling with depression for a couple of years. This is how I felt when I first noticed it.

    She was just reading in her room when
    He creeped up and whispered in her ear,

  8. 28. Monsters Roar Inside Me

    • By Gracie Kilroy
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2008

    The poem expresses the internal struggle of depression. Feelings are trapped inside and the only way to make people understand is for them to step inside your head and take a walk with your monsters. The poem is a powerful and relatable representation of the struggles of depression and the longing for understanding of the pain.

    I'm closed up ready to burst.
    Every freakish thought tingles inside me.
    My feelings want to escape but they live in silence.
    They can't find a way to morph into words,

  9. 29. They Think They Know

    • By Mackenzie Delancey
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2014

    Some may say that my poems are just random words scribbled on a page with no meaning whatsoever. But, as usual, they're wrong. Dreadfully, terribly wrong. My poems ARE me. Everything that I endure pours through me and onto the many pages of pain and agony. Though my poems may be depressing, this one in particular, they ARE me. I don't know any other way of expressing my feelings without coming out to be weak. I'm sorry if they are a bit dreadful, but I don't know what else I'm supposed to do.

    "Stop cutting yourself!" they scream.
    "It's the first stage of suicide," they say,
    But they just don't understand, do they?
    They don't understand what it's like.

  10. 30. What Really Goes On?

    Who's silver and shines
    It pierces our skin
    And draws the red lines

  11. 31. Depression

    • By Stephanie
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2015

    This poem is displaying the struggles with depression and how when in depression you don't want anyone to know about it. Then you realize you need to tell loved ones that you are suffering with depression because you can only do so much for yourself.

    Depression is an ocean
    A sea of emotions
    Depression is a war
    A constant battle within yourself

    A look at my past life when I felt nothing would save me. But then my best friend came along and showed me that there is more to life than a blade.

    The scars so pronounced

  13. 33. Wrist Cutter

    • By Grecia

    Just a poem I wrote, not sure if it is all that good, but whatever....

    I slit my wrist to erase the pain.
    you look at me and think I'm insane.
    My eyes turn red, bleeding my tears,
    and still you try to protect me from my worst fears.

    My name is Miika and I am nearly 13. I can never tell my parents how I feel because I tried once but they just didn't believe me. I needed to tell someone, so I wrote this.

    I wrote this poem because it is exactly what I feel.

    What do you call it when all you feel is pain?
    When your loved ones look at you and all you feel is shame?
    When you're tired of living and playing this game?
    When you know your life is meaningless and you're the only one to blame?

    everyday I wake up feeling like my world is upside down
    every island of my heart is being submerged into a deep abyss of unfamiliar waters
    I have no oxygen and no one to help me.

  19. 39. Alone In A Crowded Room

    • By Ashley C.
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2009

    I have been struggling with depression for quite some time. Being alone is the ultimate pain. The worst part is that nobody can see it. They are occupied with themselves, not seeing what someone is really feeling inside. Sometimes you wish that someone would just be there. This poem shares the feelings that many people including myself feel about being alone.

    All alone in this crowded room.
    My eyes meet one...another.
    They do not see me for what I am.
    They see the smile on my face;
