Dear Depression


Your Host

Dear Depression,

I see you’ve been active. Never a dull day with you. Sometimes I ask myself if you take vacations. If not, can you? I enjoy my life and the little bit of happiness I feel when I arise to a new day. But no, the mood never lasts long. You’re always near, rearing your head around the corner. I guess you saw me smiling, and that angered you. Each day is a struggle, for as I awake, so do you. When I sleep, my dreams are nothing but nightmares. You’ve attached yourself like a parasite, feeding off my fears, my emotions. I am latching on for dear life or until my heart stops. The constant battle I endure each day has weakened me. No strength to fight on; this never-ending battle is taking a toll on me. What lies beneath this smile is something, someone worth living.

My smile is the master of disguise

My smile is the master of disguise. If only they knew the struggle I go through. Sometimes I feel trap; some days, I awaken and know not myself. Some days I awaken and wish I had stayed asleep. Some days I feel great, and just like that, you snatch whatever happiness I was looking forward to that day. What lies beneath this smile is something, someone worth living. My smile is the master of disguise. If only they knew the struggle I go through. Dear Depression, go away. Let me live, let me breathe, let me, love, let me live in peace. What lies beneath this smile is something, someone worth living. I’m afraid I may lose the battle because I am growing weary. But I must keep pushing; even when my mind is wondering, my heart still sees a glimpse of hope. What lies beneath this smile is something, someone worth living. So I will keep fighting, keep arising to a new day and take on the challenges you have stored. For beneath this smile is a worthy life fighting, someone worth living.

Sincerely your Host.
