What depression feels like:Rhyming
This is my first “From the Heart” post.
There was a time in my life where I was always depressed and I felt horrible. I kept it all to myself and that only hurt me more. This is what it felt like!
Before my life was crap and everything would sap my strength
Everyone would slap me and it felt like I was scrap metal
others clap about my handicap
felt like a gift wrap box with nothing good inside
burst me like bubble wrap
only present that I unwrapped was from my only fan, death
They entrapped me in their booby traps
I put on my thinking cap but they would zap my thinking
I would strap myself with a chin strap but traps were everywhere
I feel like rap artist ranting about his problems but let me continue
My depression didn’t leave asap like the other chap
Frappes and gingersnaps helped him but not me
My life to others was just a mishap
like a dog yapping about no food and tapping the door to get out and be free
I wish there was a map for freedom and independence but I was only kidnapped by my nightmares and fears
I learned how to not only deal with it but also how to get rid of it. Later, I’ll discuss that.
