This isn't so much poetry,
this is a cry for help,
i need u people,
u are the only people i can turn to
so while your reading this,
i need please,
just know that,
someone please help, talk to me something please...

Why must I feel this way?
I know,
I am,
I am sure of,
I can see what I have,
And I do even believe that my life is really good,
Yet why do I feel this way,
Why must I be this way,
Why doesnít anyone understand,
Ií, sure you donít understand,
You probably donít even believe what I am writing,
I mean this,
I need YOU!
I need someone,
To save me,
Everyone is stupid,
They think they have a bad life,
And that life is ment to be so bad,
But its not,
I know that,
I feel sorrow,
I feel regret,
And I look at the bright side,
It like running for light at the end of a tunnel but your being held back by arms,
They hold you,
They strangle you,
They never let go,
They want you to suffer,
They know you have weakness,
Yet I keep pulling,
Trying to make my way free of those arms,
They pull me back,
To the darkness,
Away from the light,
I appear to be happy,
My friends think I have it easy,
But they canít see,
I try to tell them,
But they donít believe me,
They just donít take it seriously,
They use me,
They rape me,
They do as they wish and then throw me away like Iím some piece of trash,
I donít want to be trash,
I donít want toÖ
I try so hard,
I canít save myself,
I tried so many times,
Donít let me die,
I donít want to die,
I donít want to be left alone,

my cry for help
This sounds really grim. Anybody who has experienced depression can see it in this poem. Depression is an all too common problem and really sucks the joy out of life as you have been expressing. It is overwhelming. If you are asking for help I would strongly suggest that you talk to your doctor about medication. There are same good ones without bothersome sideeffects. Please write again and let us know how your are doing. Don't give up - depression can be beaten - I write about it myself sometimes.

Yes we all have to deal with depression from time to time...It is hard I know, I have dealt with enough of it personally and have a brother with manic depression and seasonal affective disorder. Just remember that no matter where your mind takes you, the way back is just to remember self. It is hard, but it can be done- with will power, I have a trick I used to use, maybe it might be of use to you nexttime...

stand at a mirror.
look into your eyes.
say aloud,
"I am"
repeat this aloud as you think of all the Implications of this statement. focus on all that this simple statement means, for you, emotionally, phyically, philisophically, literally, what impact it has on the world,
remember....when god was in the burning bush and asked who he was...all he said was "I am that I am" there is power in this.

Cry For Help
I agree with Wally - we retain a certain amount of power over life even if it is to choose to take meds in order to cope. Meds are never a weakeness as we can not control chemical imbalances. We choose what is best for ourselves - life can be filled with joy and if it means having to take meds to find that natural joy it is worth it. Its our choice and that gives us an edge over the illness. Go get 'em tiger!!!

I agree, but depression isn't so much a chemical imbalance and you can actually fix mania with just salt, but yeah thanks again,
I will remeber this for next time,
thanks again,
