Comments : Depression is...

  • This was so good and true. I loved it. Very well expressed.

  • Very good poem, powerful meaning. There's just some things I'd change slightly to give it more flow. When you're using the coordinating conjunction 'and' it can sometimes help a flow and sometimes it can break it, in the last paragraph it's overused and kinda drags the words with it. You might disagree which is fair enough but I was wondering if this helped, it's only a tiny bit changed

    Depression, is worse than any pain
    Depression, isn't a form of insane
    It's a feeling that is deep inside
    When all you want to do is hide

    Hide from the world, and everything in it
    Yourself, your friends, just for a minute
    Lock yourself inside from everything
    And all the pain that it will bring

    But just for a minute soon turns to forever
    You lock yourself inside altogether.
    You're not the person you were anymore
    When you can no longer find the key to the door

    Depression is many things for many people. i think that you did a good job summing up that feeling. a very concevable metaphor that most people can agree with.

    very well done

    I really like this. although i would like to act funny sometimes, most of the time i feel depressed and you are right. once depressed, its like quicksand. hard to get out of and easy to sink in further. i can relate very easily.
    Well Done

    Your poem inspires me to write,
    it tells the author to get out and
    you may not understand today,
    but from the door get out the way,
    you don't know how or when
    but if you want it open
    someones bound to kick it in..

    anyway good stuff you got there, insight. you got it right.
