Voices of darkness

Voices of darkness

Voices of darkness is a poem explaining what it’s like for me living with depression. This is my personal experience with it. I also have a follow-up poem that shares the other side of it. The link to it will be at the end. Thank you for reading and hope it helps others.   From morning to night every day Here’s what the voices have to say Its never been anything positive Always repeating the…


Burning Darkness

It all starts with a spark To bring light into the dark With the simple strike of a match Hope within begins to hatch   The fire begins as a single flame As we slowly remember our true name Adding my fears and doubts to the fire Just fuels my passion and desire   The fire increases and begins to grow Reminding me what I truly know That the lies hide in the night But…

Break Free

chain breaks

We carry so much weight on our shoulders As big as mountains or small like boulders It prevents us from our happiness and joy Wanting it gone simply like donating a toy   There is a way for us to make the weight lighter But you will have to continually be a fighter It’s not something you can do just one day Thinking it’s all gone and everything is ok   Depression and anxiety attached…


A Breakdown Journey

It takes a lot to bury the hurt and lies Down deep so I can have a smile and dry eyes Friends and family enjoy it when I am ‘me’ Not knowing the energy it takes so I can be   Day after day, I slowly grow weak As I do, the pain finds a leak Deteriorating my strength into a gigantic hole As it grows, the pain slowly fills my soul   The breakdown…


The next morning / A special friendship

The next morning The clouds were cloudy and gray While the nights were full of dismay I felt there was a cloud above me always pouring Not looking forward to the next morning Then as the cloud began to rise I looked before my very eyes I couldn’t take my eyes off of you And I knew what to do   As the sun began to shine Hoping that you will be mine And as…


Best friend

Some people have one or two Others have more than just a few We then pick one out of the crowd Because only one good friend is allowed We introduce them by a new name “This is my best friend” without shame They say that if you live through life with one then You have lived life to the fullest till the end But wait; there is one final person that we don’t recognize It…


Never Knew

You never knew that my world is as black as night Every day is a constant battle that I have to fight Even though there is a smile on the outside There is so much darkness that I try to hide You never knew I wanted to take your helping hands But can you handle daily what the battle demands World so dark I can’t see, I can only hear your voice If I could…
