My world is crashing down.
No one knows because I never show a frown.
I smile, wave, and converse.
But on the inside, I feel that I may burst.
Too many things happening at the same time.
My life feels like a mountain that’s impossible to climb.
Depression is taking over and worsening.
Under my breath, I am cursing.
At all the times I pushed people who cared away.
But it is too late to ask for help, there is nothing left to say.
I let my little problems turn into something much bigger.
My loved ones would tell me to “act with vigor”.
How can I when my world is crashing down?
Wish I could open up my mind and have you look around.
I want help but don’t want to be a burden.
No one should feel like this and that is one thing for certain.
I’ll continue to wear that smile.
But only around people and just for a while.
However, my decision is to be left alone.
Until I am dust and bone.
Until I die by my own.
