Depression.

*When I'm asked,
"you look torn" all I can say is "I'm tired. That's all".
In a way, I guess it's true
and in another way, it is a blatant lie.*

*Tonight, you ask me what depression feels like
because the teenage girl next door committed suicide.
I think and decided to tell you because this is a chance
to tell you my part of depression.*

*Then, I tell you,
It's like climbing a jagged hill with no safety gear,
you are clueless on how to go about it.
You don't know what steps will make you go 
tumbling down into the deep hole beneath.*

*You seem confused
but you don't care to ask what I meant.
Soon, you are back to the story of the suicide girl
who always looked happy.
You ask yourself, "Where did it start to go wrong?" 
and in my mind, I answer for you "From situations like this, when you fail to listen".*

*It pierces through me when people call me heartless
I guess they don't know how difficult it's to
function when you don't know which character
is the real you because you have created so many
for different purposes.*

*And here I am, avoiding your polite gaze
and forceful concerned gaze
as you ask me again, "What's wrong?"
and I bring my usual reply "I'm tired. That's all" I say
because I have realized that it's useless to tell the story when you won't listen.*

Most people are going through a lot and we need to lend our ears to them. It is never written on the forehead what most people are going through. Depression is real and if you can save someone from the grasp of it, you are saving a whole generation. You can be seated next to a broken person and not know it. Be of help to people. Be observant. Be sensitive. Get people to trust you so they can open up even more. Be trusted too.

---

*Thank you for your time.*

Mental issues (depression, autism, etc.) is the poor child of healthcare. You can't see it, so it doesn't exist seems to be the narrative

Sadly

Depression is a state of the human being in which everything or nothing is the same, nothing makes sense, and the worst thing is that if you let this feeling increase it will lead you to make mistakes, it is as you say, if we observe a depressed person and we can get closer just to say hello you want to drink coffee and talk, if they accept, analyze if they want to talk or just be silent and wait for them to decide to speak, it is complicated, the important thing is to analyze the person to help them.
A very interesting topic in your post.

One of the most talked about topics in these times of pandemics, depression is already part of everyday life unfortunately, describing it is so difficult, only those who have suffered from it can do it.
thank you

Greetings friend. When we talk about depression we are talking about the moods of the human being which vary, in which the human being studies and sees that nothing makes sense in his life, are feelings that can not be allowed to move forward are bad advisors that often lead us to make irreparable mistakes, the most important thing is to analyze in time and seek professional help. thank you for sharing your article.
