You pop in and out of my day.
You fill my eyes with tears.
My mind with thoughts of loneliness.
I will net let you control my fears.
You send my thoughts in a whirlwind.
Overthinking everything around me.
You make me want to run and hide.
I don’t want you around me.
I don’t want you in my life.
I shut you out long ago.
And you continue to show your ugly soul.
I have control of my life.
I will not let the tears fall.
I know I am not alone.
My fears are only what I make them.
My thoughts settle each night where I am safe.
I am stronger than running and hiding.
Face me as I face you.
You may be something that will always be.
But depression, you are not All of ME!
