Angel Wings

Today was the day that depression won,
because the world was too heavy.

Each day another battle was waiting,
body too heavy to move out of bed.

The gloomy cloud darkens above
as it rains harder through the day.

This world beat her down too far
leaving her weak and famished.

Today was the day that depression won
and she gained her wings leaving behind
children, family, and friends weeping.

Recently a dear family friend fought a hard battle with depression and a variety of other things. The family friend gave her life because she wasn’t able to control life anymore. If you or anyone you know that is suffering with depression or suicidal thoughts reach out to the suicide hotlines or movements. To Write Love On Her Arms is a great movement. Take care all.

  1. Nice post. Depression is a serious thing even more serious than people take it. I think the drugs even make it worse. I think doctors should treat the minds of the patients and not give them drugs to stimulate happy moods.

    1. Yes, depression is a serious illness and it’s definitely hard to understand sometimes. Drugs aren’t always the way to go. Alternative leisure activities should be recommended to help people coupe. Thank you so much for reading!
