*Disclaimer: This is just a creative writing exercise,

intended to create a dark mood / feeling; the feeling of

someone trapped in isolation and depression with no way out.

If you are feeling like self-harm please talk to someone,

maybe go here or here.

 

some people cut themselves

just to feel something

to confront their pain

and face it head on

some people cut themselves

to feel alive

to know that they’re breathing

to know that they control

what happens in their life

they want to escape

they want to be present

they want to exist

but they might rather die

they want to scream out loud

nobody listening

they’re tired of people

with all of their lies

they want to be cared for

they want to be loved

but they’d much rather be

up above

at least someone cares up there

nobody gets them

no one is there

existence is pain

so why not confront it

hiding your pain

and creating your own

want to be heard

nothing to say

scars on their arms

speak for themselves

the only way

they want someone to say

“yeah,

 

 

What is the nature of depression?  Why are so many people these days depressed?  First of all, there is situational depression and long-term depression.  Situational depression can happen for a slew of reasons.  Loss of a job, loss of friends, a traumatic event like a mugging, the fact that you like someone and they don’t like you back.  I will be instead focusing on long-term clinical depression; the depression that you cannot merely shake off; that stays with you through thick and thin; no matter what.  When the brief moments of good times don’t really compare to the massive black cloud always hovering over you.

 

In life, there is suffering; it is inevitable.  Some people unfortunately experience more suffering than others.
