The waves of irony befall upon me,

as I am submerged in the sea,

they don't bother to ponder why

I lurk within these waters…

The sea will eat me up,

and the water will consume me,

and no one will care,

not at all:

because everyone is too busy with

self-indulging themselves.



★ I   ★ T r e a d  ★  N o t  ★  T h e e 


I am not worthy of land,

because land means “freedom”

and freedom is dead, and lurks nowhere.

I am strangled and I cry out,

but no one listens because

listening is so dangerous to society.

Depressing waters would tide me to shore,

but only temporary before releasing me to the dogs:

how can someone live such a cruel life?

How can someone feed me to ★  t h i s  ★ tyrant,

called the human brain?

★  L a n d  ★  o f  ★  [A B ] N O R M A L I T Y  ★

Perhaps I lurk in waters that are not meant to be touched,

but I was never powerful enough to stop them.

Perhaps my land will never be forever,

before the waves consume me once more.

Maybe ★ a n d ★  just maybe:

There was no sense of normal to begin with.

Maybe there was only a sense of weakness,

or dread:

in the fate of my life that surrounds me.

In these days,

This girl fights for her freedom everyday:

none stop;

forever…

until she is consumed by her fear.

This girl doesn't deserve to be hated ★  f o r  ★ her monsters.

She is a ★  l i v i n g  ★ ,

breathing thing:

like yourself.

She can be thrown to the waters over and over,

but she can never ever

drown.

 ★     I n     ★     T h e    ★    E y e s       o f    ★    t h e    ★   S u r v i v o r  

Someday,

I'll be out of the waters:

but on this day,

I want to bring the world with me.

Scattered thoughts about my viewpoint on depression. Enjoy~

I am having a really good time with this... kinda over did it though, haha;; :XD: Oh well. I was not feel the best when writing this, so sorry if it's semi negative. I'm feeling better now, thankfully <3 :D

I thought this had a good message regardless... so I decided I'd have it in my gallery. :) Although I should note, the beginning is a little head strong... sorry ^^;

I don't have any questions for critic this time. If you're going to critic, be sure to let me know how you feel about the concept, as well as some advice to improve this work.

(and must be really difficult to write sth like this...)

It's not too bad, actually~ It's really fun! It comes naturally to me... :D  I love experimenting with poetry <3 The message behind this was a little more um, "depressing" than usual... so I hope it got it's meaning across okay.
