A lot of people today suffer from varying degrees of depression and other illnesses that are not apparent. I wrote this as a way of connecting to those. If you know of someone so stricken then don’t ignore them, that can be the cruellest thing of all.
I want to give in, and call it a day.
Give up on it all, and walk away.
I have no life, that’s left inside
No longer do I wish, to simply survive.
Give me respite, give me peace.
Lay my body down and give me release.
There is nothing left in life for me to explore,
Except that which awaits behind that final door.
On days of despair I welcome death.
Those days are now becoming too many,
Take away my final breath.
