Some Day

the factors of depression

rip at my insides

there is fear and loneliness

pulling at my heart

keeping me away from

friends who are dear

afraid I will upset them or

thinking they don’t really care

there is regret and embarrassment

I am always doing it wrong

the one to blame and

the one who never dared

to take the chance

there is also shame

to scold me and what I am

there is lots of sadness and pain

tears flow too often

leaving a river of doubt

and daily I ache

from head to toe

yes, depression rips at me

and I fear it will win some day
