If I read this right then I truly believe that those who choose to leave would never have found solace in todays sunlight. I suffer severely with depression and some days are okay and I am filled with so much energy, other days I reward myself for getting out of bed and doing something even if its making a cup of coffee then sitting on the sofa lol (you have inspired me to write something) I guess no two people with depression are the same as they have their own woes and foes.
A great poem with quite alot of food for thought.
Take care, Em
Thank you for your comment!
I hope you have brighter days ahead of you.
You are right in saying that everyone suffers depression differently. The two friends I thought about while writing this were the type who kept things in and suffered quietly.
I often wonder if they had thought better of leaving their children behind, would they have changed their minds? Or if they'd waited it out a little longer to see things changing for the better, that there were better options. It just sucks that they're not around to see the changes or experience them.

I thought that your imagery here was first class, there's a really great flow when reading this feeling completely unforced and natural to read if that makes sense.
