Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone would understand if you fall apart, that's true strength.

depression is an arrowhead
stuck in your shoulder
the skin and tissue
slowly growing around it
it warps your body
causing pain
some days its easier to handle
but more often than not
it drags you down
it causes more problems
to multiply
more arrows stuck during battle
only making the fight even harder
it makes you feel worthless
being slave to the pain
we know that we could operate
take this defilement out
work on it
fix it
but that requires so much effort
that by then you don't have
so you let it fester
its grasp growing stronger
they say its a choice
a choice to have this arrowhead
ground deep into you
but people don't understand
unless they have an arrowhead
of their own
just how much
it changes us
fogging our brain
with thoughts of hurt
some people learn
how to ignore their arrowhead
unless they bump into something
hitting it
opening the wound wide again
making it harder to heal
just pushing through life
trying to forget
with the many scars to remind them
so they fight harder
try to defog
let it rule
cant push it down
some let the arrowhead
its infections included
drag them down
into darkness
into nothingness
swallowed whole by the pain
until life
no more
