Persistently Depressed

Ever been through a hard time where you just burst out crying?
The tears unintentionally flow and you feel like you’re dying?
Everything hurts and you just want to leave, 
Trying to figure out yourself, thinking why you have so much grief,
It’s like the world is coming to an end,
There’s no way out,
We can’t just pretend,
Give it one more chance, they say it’ll be alright,
But how am I supposed to be ok when I can’t stay to fight?
I don’t even know what I’m doing anymore,
I can’t sleep at night,
Optimistic, futuristic, good will, well-endowed is who I’m trying to be,
But look closer inside,
I’m dying can’t you see?
I’m not happy no more,
I don’t eat no more,
I can’t drink no more,
It’s this big black hole surrounding me,
And I’m slowly falling deeper and deeper….
