Depression

Depression overwhelms me.
Worry surrounds me.
Fear drags me under.

They pull me down,
Pushing me under.
I can’t breathe,
I can’t fight it.

Terror grips my heart.
Sadness blocks my lungs.
Anxiety presses heavily on me.

I can’t breathe,
I can’t move,
They’re closing in.
Making sure I can’t help them.

Oh God, please help me.
My friends are hurt and bleeding,
And I can’t stop it.
I can’t move.
I don’t know how to fight it.
I don’t know if I can.

I need help,
But there is no one to help me.
They all need me.
But I need them just as much.

But I can’t let it show.
They can’t know what I’m feeling.
How alone and helpless I am.

Tears fill my eyes,
My heart blocks my throat.
Sadness fills my chest,
Weighing me down.

I don’t know what to do.
I’ve never felt so helpless before.
They all need me and I’m failing them.

I can’t see what’s right in front of me.
I can’t see what’s wrong.
I can’t see the hurt they’re hiding.
I need help,
But they need me more.
I can fight this.
I have to.
I can work through my pain and guilt.
I can heal the suffering around me.
I can save my friends from themselves.
At least…I hope I can.
