hiding my tears
under a mask of joy
no one can know
i'm drowning

if i call out for help
will anyone hear me?

they ask if i'm okay
if everything's alright
i want to scream no
nothing is okay

i nod my head and
smile
smile for the camera
everyone is watching

i'm okay i say
as tears flood down
my cheeks

invisible tears

stay strong
deep breaths
count to ten

i'm okay.

This poem was made for a good friend of mine.
I know you can get through this. Don't quit.

That's not really hopeful if this is for a friend :/

My input: It's going to suck, feeling sad is going to suck. Being depressed is going to suck, being weighted down by everyone oblivious to you is going to suck. Things are going to get bad, worse and worse to the point you can't believe what's happening and you're slumping in the darkness of it all

...

But you're not done, humans are made to adopt. You WILL not fall in pieces without the chance of recovery, without the great fight even if your very mind opposes you. You will fight and claw your way and use your emotions to do what you thought impossible. YOU are infinite, take that and vow to the world you will prove yourself.

YOU aren't entitled to people who make you feel bad, make yourself distant from them. Do not let them continue hurting you. Do what makes you happy, look at the flowers and smile because things in this world it's still pure. It's not OVER till the very end, so fight with a raging spirit in your heart, you can not beat everything. But you better make sure you TRY to oppose them.

I can only understand so much from this. For your friend, be a emotional pillar. You don't have to coo your friend, just don't make a big fuss, make your friend included. Try to relate with your forum and understand what's happening. If you have the same issues, even better, you would be able to relate extremely well. Learn your friend's triggers and fear. See what interests them and ask them about it, people are happy when you share their passions.


i would honestly recommond listening to World Collide, lyrics will be pasted. Also, try having your friend listen to sinrpiation video, AMAZING, inspiring music combined with the speakers' tales and encouragment.

Do we fight to hold our heads up high,

And beat the drum to what we love?

Risk the fall, oh we have felt it all,

come crashing down from far above.

Stars arising, countless worlds colliding,

only one will take it all.

Can we bring to fall the giants,

Can we make the final call.

We are the ones,

To ignite the darkened skies.

The champions, Of a world that we defy.

A solemn reign,

Of the few who rise up high.

And we all fight,

at the last light.

Hearing voices from afar,

join the madness when the curtain falls.

Risk it all, hold nothing back,

Seize the day, we must attack.

Stars arising, countless worlds colliding,

only one will take it all.

Can we bring to fall the giants,

Can we make the final call.

We are the ones,

To ignite the darkened skies.

The champions,

Of a world that we defy.

A solemn reign,

Of the few who rise up high.

And we all fight,

at the last light.

Can we bring to fall the giants.

We are the ones,

To ignite the darkened skies.

The champions,

Of a world that we defy.

A solemn reign, Of the few who rise up high.

And we all fight, at the last light.

Thank you for your input, but the actual meaning of this poem was that she can overcome what she is going through. It's kind of dark and depressing but I am actually trying to convey meaning and expression through my words and paint a picture of what she is feeling. Although it is not the most optimistic  poem, I'm not one to sugarcoat reality and say everything in the world is okay when it's not.

The meaning of this poem is that although she may not feel okay and no one seems to listen, people realize and know something's wrong. They're there for you, and they'll help you. Even if on your face is a fake smile, the people that care about you most will know. I know she'll be okay. Thank you again for your feedback but this is my interpretation of depression communicated through my words.

I'm not getting that vibe, I see what you mean. But the poem was basically grimdark in the sense it was all the bad stuff but nothing about it'll be ok, I found myself expecting a part two, even.

I just believe that a friend is all you need in the darkness, prehaps tainted by the darkness, but someone to share your feelings with. And that's called friendship c:

Of course. She even helped me write this in the way that she expressed her feelings to me and I wrote it in poetry.
