“Those of us who have depression, often feel it intensely and it can last for weeks, months, and even years. Some types of depression have genetic components, and others come from too many overwhelming events happening. It is hard for anyone to understand depression unless you have experienced it. It has nothing to do with having a weak mind, or lack of faith in God, or things other people list. It has something to do with being human and living in a world where good things happen, but also bad things. It has something to do with lack of support and resources, and losses. Failure to get up in the morning comes from exhaustion, and  losing hope that things can get better. It does not come from being lazy, or being unmotivated, or having a flaw. It comes from your heart breaking, being hurt terribly by others, having your world turn upside down, and going through life with little. The next two poems I post will be about depression. I hope it helps others understand the word better.”   Yu/stan/kema.

 

Choices and Depression.

There are times in our lives

When we are faced with obstacles

Which force us to re-examine all

We once believed in,

And who we are.

There are choices to be made

Even while we are oblivious

To them because of tiredness.

We struggle to choose:

Life over death,

Peace instead of war,

Love and not hate,

Hope instead of despair,

Service over isolation,

Faith instead of  disbelief,

Good instead of evil,

And joy rather than sorrow.

Resources dictate which

Choices we will make

As well as our capacity

To rise when we fall.

The need to survive is

What keeps us alive.
