  • New Depression

    A life in ruin
    A world in silence
    There was tension
    There was defiance

    The skies are black
    We feel torn apart
    Constant sorrow
    Forever deep in our hearts

    Either this is pain
    Or for our own good
    Some may adapt
    Some can't pull through

    As daylight breaks open
    To all cities and streets
    We now hide our faces
    As if we're diseased

    It's a new depression
    That we all have to embrace

    How we all dream of
    A return to normality
    Even though we hate all this
    It's only temporary

    It's a new depression
    That we all have to embrace
    For a while

    A new depression
    A black future

    "New normal"... those two words alone just make me want to scream.

    I'm with you on catch phrases like "new normal". One of the things I like about poetry is that poets often find new ways to express things instead of lazing back on the kind of terms repeated, parrot fashion, motivated by group think.

      stop killing yourself with depression go read a soul book it will help 100% my friend always was in depression state, and no matter how I was cheering him he was coming back to his state when he was left alone.. and I wont tell about weed, one time I gave him a poof and he was even more depressed lol. He said he had too much on his mind and I made him a tea of white maeng da kratom powder, he seemed to chill his thoughts and finally started to analyze his life and whats inside his head. Funny how every problem can be solved with just letting it go.

        That's a very helpful comment. I appreciate it(!)

        And I wasn't even talking about depression from that entry posted, if you even read it through.

      Made a very small change in the fourth verse, and added a short new verse.

      Given that we're nearing the end of this pandemic, although some parts of the world being at different stages of if, for now this piece is still relevant.
