Favorite Quote:
"Stand up for what you believe in, even if it means standing alone." - Andy Biersack

Oh, how I long to be free.

To be able to do what I want,
when I want.

I’ve been captive for so long,
I have forgotten
what the sun looks like,
what the heat feels like.

Too long have I been a prisoner.
I have forgotten
right from wrong,
left from right,
up from down.

I’m caged daily in darkness, pain, and sadness.
I just want to see the light,
feel no pain,
and be happy.

But, that’s hard to do
When your mind is your master,
And you are its slave.

Dealing with depression my whole life, I wrote this poem trying to explain what it's like being trapped by depression in your mind. I wrote this for people who go through what I do daily.
