"How are you?"

"I’m fine."

fine, fine like mother’s china,
breaking with a touch.
fine, fine like a fair maiden,
for whom only tragedy awaits.
fine, like the thread of life,
flimsy and anxious.
I’m fine,
thanks.

With everything
That's going on
I just can't keep
Hanging on

My sleep
Has been eluded
My brain
Has been deluded
My health
Not included
I'm nearly
Disillusioned

With everything
That's going on
I just can't keep
Hanging on
I'm slowly losing myself
I need help

I'm trying
To enjoy
Time with my family
I'm trying
To enjoy
My break from school
I'm trying
To enjoy
The time off I have

But instead
I am spending
My time
Depressed
And down in the dumps
I'm spending
My time
Making everyone else
Miserable
As well
I'm spending
My time
Trying to control
These negative emotions

I want to put
On a smile
And pretend
Like everything
Is fine
As I usually do
But this time
I can't even
Do that
Why must depression ruin my life?
Moon Wright Nov 2018
I feel like
A worthless
Piece of trash
Because I always
Have so many
Problems

They seem never-ending
And more seem to come
At a moment's notice
For seemingly no reason

I'm tired
Of feeling this way
I'm tired
Of being so pessimistic
I'm tired
Of letting others down
I'm tired
Of being that one person
No one wants to be around
Because of my mouth
And my thoughts
And my many, many problems

I'm tired of living this life

So I'm going
To make it my goal
To change
And become
Something my brain seems
To not see
For myself
This is my current mood and has been for a while

I need to pay attention
To what life
Throws at me
Because with each
New day
A little blinder I see
Concentration
I what I need
To past at life
And to succeed
I need to clear
My thoughts
In my mind
As sooner or later
I'll find
I've run out of time
So I need to focus
With each new day
So I do my work
And not wander or stray
A brief poem based on my life

I'm wanting to be
A better version of me
But with each day
And step I take
I seem to be taking
One step forward
And two steps back

I'm wanting to be
A better version of me
But my mind
Tries and tries
To find ways
To destroy my soul
Every single day

I'm wanting to be
A better version of me
But my body
Doesn't have the energy
And the effort
To obtain such
A good being

I'm wanting to be
A better version of me
But only my spirit
Is willing
To find this better
Me
Wanting to be a better person is hard sometimes

I know better
Trust me
I do
Than to trust you
Or anyone else
For that matter

I know better
Believe me
I do
Than to believe
Too hard
In my dreams

I know better
See me
I do
Than to believe
In looks
Over the inside

I know better
Hear me
Than to listen
To words
I don't believe in

I know better
Believe me
Than to expect too much
From myself
Or anyone else
I know better
