Somedays I barely hold on,

When all my strength is just gone.

The flames of agony are beyond compare,

As I watch them rise in despair.

I stumble and fall,

and can’t break down this terrible wall.

When will all this end?

Depression breaks whatever doesn’t bend.

There’s an ache in my chest

But I swear I’m doing my best.

Feels like my ship will drown,

without any lifeboats around.

Days are lifted in a haze,

And this doesn’t seem like just a phase.

I need one of those long hugs,

Cause it’s like my brain is infested with bugs.

I end this with a question at last.

Will depression ever become my past?

    Of course it would soon become past Isha. Nothing lasts. Nothing whatsoever. A warm hug for you 🤗

    “Depression breaks whatever doesn’t bend.” It is true. But don’t worry, very soon it will be vanished. Keep writing…
