I can’t sleep
My mind is a jumble
Why can’t I just be normal
Why when I’m happy it never lasts
Something bad always happens after
I feel hopeless sometimes
It’s apparently a symptom of depression
Which I have
But why does my list of issues keep growing
Sorry if this poem is depressing but aren’t a lot of poems depressing. I like writing, it helps me cope with stuff that’s going on. Usually I write when I’m upset and please take into consideration that some things I write in poems I don’t feel all the time. Yes I’m depressed but medication and therapy helps, but I find that what helps the most is having someone you can count on to talk to. I don’t talk about my mental health on here to much just the occasional poem, late night thoughts, stuff like that.
I’m kind of dealing with some stuff right now, so sorry if I don’t upload to much this up coming week.
