Depression and Co.

Depression & Co.

 

Sadness

Anger

Depression

Anxiety

 

You have molded me

Like a slab of marble

Not yet formed into the

Masterpiece that it

Is meant to be

And it hurt

The chiselle breaking off bits of my soul

 

But there are others

Others who helped

More than hindered

 

Ambition

Joy

Kindness

Love

 

From all of you

I have learned things

Wonderful things

Lessons I will cherish

For all of the endless

Blink that is existence

Infinity in a moment

 

So thank you

 

Thank you Gratitude

Thank you Confidence

Enthusiasm, Satisfaction

Caring and Admiration

Thank you Hope

Thank you Serenity

Pride and Awe

 

But love and hate

Are two sides of the same

Dusty old coin

 

So thank you

 

Thank you Pain

Thank you Suffering

Heartache and Misery

Fear and Loathing

Thank you Guilt

Thank you Shame

Frustration and Hopelessness

 

For I have grown

And flourished

Under your harsh tutelage

But I will never be perfect

Though you have schooled me

In more ways than one

My masterpiece is not yet done

 

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
