no matter what, wherever you go in life... there you are.

demons rule inside my brain
with thoughts of hate, and death, or pain
my mind is like a simple cage
with bars of fear, self hate and rage
i cant get out, why even try?
ill just embrace the fact that i
am stuck in this prison, a mental cell
insanity becomes my hell
i feel alone, through day and night
feel born of sorrow and of spite
i just want out, but all can see
the door is locked, and has no key
prisoner to my thoughts, i crave
nothing but my well earned grave
praying to God to not be me,
is death all that can set me free?

many of my family (including myself) battle with clinical depression, i just hoped some of the people that take it lightly would get an idea of how we feel, without having to look through our eyes.

This is so perfect. I can relate x100000000. So much emotion in this. I love the last two lines. This is an amazing poem.

"Poetry flows. Right from my heart, to the paper. The best poems create themselves within your heart, and your mind...well, the mind interprets them... See, think of your heart as the artist, and your mind as the audience... get it?"

This was well written and it touches my heart 'cuz I relate so thoroughly. Writting helps doesn't it? It does for me. Keep writting, I can tell you have a lot to say.
