Boredom is deadly…

I’m starting to think that a lot of depression, for me anyway, is caused by boredom. Although routine is drummed into us as Bipolar patients it is tedious and therefore counter intuitive in a way… I crave adventure, I want new daily experiences and to meet new people regularly, I try distract myself with exercise, […]

Dear Mum, I’ve got depression…

Eavesdropping slightly and picking up on small bits of a conversation, I overheard a child a few days ago telling her parents that she felt anxious. Unfortunately I didn’t stick around long enough to hear what this little girl, no older than 7 years of age, was anxious about. I did however, hear her father […]

To Be A Friend

Be a friend ,

Be a friend to the poor ,

To the lonely ,to the sick
Bake a cake ,

Make a call ,

Spend a day have a ball
Finding out what makes other people tick
Don’t suppose when someone’s old they don’t need a hand to hold because from one to one hundred we depend.
On some love we can share ,

On just knowing someone’s there
So be a friend be a friend , be a friend
So be a friend be a friend , be a friend lend a hand as you’re traveling life’s road
Don’t sit home on a shelf , give your time , give yourself find a way to ease someone else’s load.
Pat a back , lend an ear, share a smile ,

Wipe a tear be a dear,

You’ll spread joy with each hand that you extend and you will find when you do twice as much comes back to you .
So be a friend be a friend , be a friend
So be a friend be a friend , be a friend
There’s a world out there waiting for your touch.
And though you may be small ,

If you’ll give it your all ,the good you do can add up to very much.
While you’re strong and can give that’s the right way to live for the love that you share you only lend
When it’s all said and done someday you will need a friend
So be a friend be a friend , be a friend,….

Be a friend!

Blue Is…

Blue Is…

Blue is the ocean
Blue is the sky
Blue are the tear drops
people have cried.
Blue is a rain storm
Blue is a flavor
Blue is a summertime,
moments I savior
Blue is a friendship
Blue is a feeling
a broken heart
that’s just begun healing
Blue is the earth
Blue are the stars
Blue’s all around us
this whole world of ours

Fade To Black

You used to hear her mangled call
But now she’s hollow inside
Filled up with drugs and alcohol
And drained of all her pride

As good times always seem to fall,
And memories go out with the tide
Her cares and feelings grow so small
And her soul becomes fates bride

She tried to get ahead in life,
But now she’s lost her mind
She used to have a conscience
But dignity gone blind

She gave her whole life away
To those who can’t give back
And now she’s left with nothing
Stuck in a world that faded black
(this poem is about my sister)

Loose one.

Torn

Torn

You gaze upon me blindly, not seeing the truth.
You see me for what I am not.
I am not like her.
The wings that held me up once were torn by emotion.
My eyes, amber velvet turned opaque green by tears.
My face, once radiant and smiling, now somber and wary by hatred.
This pain stamped an emotional burn upon my life.
Look at me; open your eyes to the sunshine that forever awaits.
A chained heart, sealed with eternal pain…
Breaking the shattered illusion where life was bliss.
Seeing the sun through the mist, through dark clouds…
Shackled forever to this misery, to this hatred.
Old wounds disturbed once again…

Gone

in the cold pale morn
her cold dead lips
shorn
she wasn’t in love
she never was
the death that took her was
quite
excruciating
doctors diagnosed
Depression
but that’s not
why she died
she died
of
despair
loneliness
because
no one cared
no one called
her on the phone
she had no one
no one even
knew where
she lived
at work she was overlooked
the best in her
field
but
no one
noticed
cared
her friends
or so they called
themselves
described her
as
withdrawn
quite
shy
soft-spoken
very timid
around guys
she died
because
no one
loved her
her heart
broke
from
lack of
affection
of human contact
one day
she decides
to disappear
she thought
what’s the use
no one cares
all they do is give me abuse
physical
mental
sexual
i get bullied
and
harassed
at work
by some weirdo jerk
who grabs my ass
the day
she died from
lack of love
no one noticed
they didn’t
see the empty
shell
she was still
alive to them
they didn’t
realize
the distance look
in her eyes
no one realized
until it was too late
by then she was
gone
gone was her
smile
her laugh
in its place
was a Blank
sonic look
