It wasn't just me

My head was spinning Going round and round I wanted to run away and never be found I used to cry People would ask but I couldn't tell them why I had become so shy I couldn't even look people in the eye Oh when oh when would this feeling stop? I want to curl up under that rock I couldn't explain It was like there was never sun, always rain No-one will understand they'll think that I'm lying But every day I swear to god Im really trying I should have been living, having fun Not standing here wanting to run Whenever I walked out of my door I would automatically look at the floor Hands clammy Legs going bammy Heart would Pound so fast I hate this feeling, how long will it last? See the thing is I have depression But I wish that someone would have taught me the lesson About how life can get so tough When you juggle with your mind and other stuff So now I'm here to tell you all That it is okay to feel a bit low You don't have to suffer my dear I am here to give an ear I am someone who understands Ill be here to lend a hand

Many of us struggle with depression, Natalie, we are poets, we are sensitive. This poem describes well how we suffer but you have managed to come out the other end with an attitude of helpfulness. Your empathy is shining brightly. Have a great day.
