A Side of Depression

Depression overwhelms like the night
Overshadows the daylight

Anxiety, a friend and foe
Will be by your side like a befriended crow

The darkness comes and blankets your positivity
Darkness, an old friend, comes and feeds off the negativity
Relentless in its conquest
Unhinged by the years that must pass before you give in
And let it take you

It’s in the mist of the darkness
Where I find the inspiration
To write
The inspiration to overcome
The inspiration to be better
But at the cost of my mental health

It’s in the mist of the hole
That I have the strength to 
Crawl out
But don’t have the strength
To not fall in

Depression is a mental killer
Depression will always be part of me
Will always love within in me
Will never surrender and will 
Never stop
Until the moment that I let it
All drop

I have been writing poetry since a teenager but did not have the courage to really show it off. It wasn't until I had some tools as I battled depression and mental illness. They are still a part of me, which you will see for yourself. My writing is dark and raw.
