Anger locked inside,

  Smiles seen,

  Tears within,

  Pain hidden,

  Deep inside my soul,

  Locked up for no one to know,

  People don"t realize,

  The pain I feel.

  The pressure to be perfect,

  All add to the stress I have,

  I look for a release from the pain,

  Laughter with my friends,

Provides only a short ecxtasy.

Why is there no way out?

What will give me a way out?

Depression is a cruel thing to live with, but some of those I know who live with say that their writing helps. I hope yours does also.

I know these feelings all to well. You described DEPRESSION so well in your words.

There is a way out! Keep writing as beautifully as you have.
