Default GHOSTS (Thoughts of a Depressive)

Though at times it seems like the right thing to do,
I let the thought seep out of my mind,
For its consequences aren’t things I could undo,
And peace isn’t something I’d ever find

Alone We cry ‘til We run out of tears
At the rest of the world, We smile
They think that We might be doing it out of fear
But honestly, sometimes We don’t even know why!

I guess it is just the way We are wired,
But I can’t recall if I’ve been like this from the start
Eventually, everyone does get tired
But like a ravaging avalanche, We fall apart

Now the world is a dark and lonely place,
Not much different from before
All We desire is to be loved and to feel safe
There’s nothing We’d ever want more

It’s not a thing We could snap out of, something We could change
We keep praying to find ways to cope
No one seems familiar, and everything is strange
Hope, itself is Our only hope

So don’t turn your backs on Us, please
Now is when We need you the most
There is no better privilege than to be free,
And with your help, We could drive out Our GHOSTS

Excellent poem! I applaud your talent and your courage. As a writer, I know the uneasiness I feel when my work is available for all to see.
