Sometimes going through depression is what makes a person
It gives a glimpse of reality
A vision with everlasting loneliness and destroyed self-image
This emotion holds one hostage
It slowly deteriorates the meaning of life
And as if you’re the victim of domestic violence,
It seems so impossible to escape
To end this horror.
A problem I struggled with for over a year
Possesses two outcomes
One of knowledge, experience and success
The other of deep, undesirable, medicated depression
I look it as yin versus yang
“You cannot see a shadow without light.”
Opposing forces creating such a cooperative team
I was merely sitting under a tree,
Battling the shade
No wonder the sun seemed so out of reach.
I write to share my story.
To eventually inspire others.
To give them hope.
To give them strength.
