I’ve battled depression.
Most of you don’t consider it an issue you should talk about or report to.
I want to and I am,
So should you.
It all started with Hope and Love,
Something I didn’t believe in earlier,
And it turned out to change my life.
I won’t say it destroyed me,
Cause I’ve been learning,
And, it never goes to waste.
I was this person who couldn’t care less,
And somehow I turned into someone who got bothered by everything happening around.
I became a mess,
For myself and for others.
I lost my health,
And in the midst,
I was numb for continuous days and nights,
Nothing made me feel better.
Some people left me, and some, I left.
You see that was important,
To know who sticks around.
But what’s more important amongst all of this is,
You shouldn’t allow it to sink into you.
The deeper it permeates,
The harder for you to come out of it.
I don’t know how bad it has been for you,
Or how tough have you been.
Feelings are important,
But so are you,
And so is Self Love.
Believe in actions,
And not mere words,
It’s a mask they hide in.
Things and people will always come and go,
Don’t hold on,
Invest in yourself.
Don’t let it cease you.”
