I'm depressed,

No one understands.

I'm laughing,

Yet, deep inside I'm sad,

An unexpained sadness.

I'm depressed,

No one understands.

I'm smiling,

Yet, deep inside, I'm crying,

No one sees my tears.

I'm fighting,

Fighting a great fight,

But, there is nothing there,

Not a body to see,

Not a person to name.

I'm fighting,

Fighting a great fight,

But, there is no one there,

Not a spirit to see,

Not a name to name.

3

Why continue to fight?

Why not give in?

It will be easier,

One last breath, one last thought,

One life, end.

Why continue to fight?

Why not give in?

It can be the answer,

One more breath, one more thought,

One life, gold.

My life is precious, I have only one life.
