Hello guys! It has been a while since I have posted any content. I recently wrote a poem. It does have any rhymes and is a form of Slam poetry. It is about a person’s journey through depression and coming out of it. It quite a long poem so read through it with patience. Please read through and comment below. Thank you.
Let us look into the darkness beyond,
Once again asking yourself if your fear pains or nags you like a quiet voice,
Look at that reflection beyond the mirror and ask yourself if the smile is genuinely you.
You hold on believing that the person in your mind will leave and that smile will no longer be fake,
Still, you are lonely, too scared to make friends, too ready to be alone
And that is why that voice pains, but never shuts
It tears all the walls you build because it knows your fears, it feeds on it
You lead two lives, one that laughs and the other that cries internally
And yet, you look around hoping someone will understand but, they leave you behind like wind after it rains
You scream to yourself, to the world,
You punish yourself and break that mirror to hide from self
Yet, we both are here with the voice still in us
Let us look in the darkness beyond and ask if we are still the same,
Or have we changed
Do we have sunken eyes, hollowed cheeks and fast heartbeats
Or just like the others, we have beautiful faces with a pretty laugh.
Look in yourself and ask “Do I have the storm of doubt or the fire of confidence in me?”
And you will know when you have an answer
You look in the darkness again but, now there is a light at the end,
It calls to your heart but, the voice in you says “NO”
It whispers, “The light is not in your comfort zone, it is new and different”
But your heart screams, it says “Let the mind be left behind this once, listen to what your heart says. Choose because it is time too.”
You thought hard and this first time we both chose our hearts,
You started the walk to the light and I went with you through the metamorphosis of life.
The fake laugh turns real, with bell chimes ringing somewhere within it
You lose your mask of despair and we both feel a ferocity,
One that has the fragrance of confidence
It has been years since we have lived in the walls of darkness.
The voice has died and is replaced with the sounds of friends and family,
Your smile infectious, makes others smile too
Let us look in the darkness beyond and laugh to ourselves, “This was once me”.
