I Am


Tucked away from the view of the world

I am 

Locked out of sight of those that do judge

I am

Riddled with contempt of other’s strength

I am

Hiding my face and refusing to let anyone see 

I am

Afraid to breathe lest I divulge my hiding place

I am

Breaking people in two and families asunder

I am

Ensnared by the turmoil that eats away inside

I am 

Fallen from the light into the darkest of times

I am

My name spoken on the lips of the persecuted

I am… Depression©
