Dear teenager,
You better prepare for the worst days of your life because, sweetie, I am on my way. I will show you no mercy, and I will take over your life. You will fight me so long and so hard, all you'll want to do is sleep. I will beat you so hard, all you will want to do is cry.
I will take over your precious mind at its weakest moment- a moment of sadness. I will make you fill to the brim with pain, the only way to escape it will be hurting yourself, one way or another.
I am what they call a murderer. I make teenagers commit suicide daily, even hourly. Every now and then, one will fight back. I usually come back for revenge.
Tell me, teenager, are you scared yet?
If not, don't you worry.
Yu will be soon.
Yours truly,
Depression

This is so... Horribly true. It happens, and I can't think of a better way to describe it.

I would consider this to be a piece of prose, which is often classified as poetry because it walks the thin line between fiction and poetry. So, you can't go wrong either way. :)

I know, but that doesn't change the message of the piece

"If you keep on picking on me, I'll mess up again. This time, on PURPOSE."

No offense, but not really a poem.
