Editorial: Could This Be Depression?

Written by; Tiamiyu Rachael Taiwo

Loneliness eating me so deep
Friends straying from me, so real
Tears strolling down my face, so hot
Fears gripping my heart, so firm

Is this the life I chose?
Only if I knew life wouldn’t be this fair, I wouldn’t have made the first cry.
At least, that would have saved me from the constant cries.

Where are the seemingly ‘real’ folks
Most flew like a pack of cards
Leaving me to phantom the surreal that comes with the gas
I thought they were better
Not until they became strangers
Inadvertently turning me to face this dagger; depression.

This is me finding solace in sleep
This is sleep running away from me as insomnia eats me deep

But will I wait till I become a bait to the ravaging depression gate?
Will I wait till I become a shadow of my beautiful face?

This is me treading the DANGER ZONE I’ve always dread; DEPRESSION!
