Depressed Person (Poem)

I know depression,

I’ve been depressed,

I know how hard it is to deal with depression,

I also know you don’t always have to be depressed,

I know you can beat depression.


I also know how hard it can be to help a depressed person,

A depressed person can’t always be helped unless they want to be helped,

Sadly, I didn’t know you were also a depressed person,

Sadly, I now see that you don’t want to be helped,

You want to continue being a depressed person.


You tried to help me even when you were depressed,

Yet how can a depressed person help another depressed person?

We were both making each other depressed,

Even now you have the ability to turn me back to a depressed person,

Thankfully, by analyzing I’m able to stop being depressed.
