This poem describes the feelings inside of me once I found I was diagnosed as a "depressed" person. These aren't even close to all of the thoughts that goes through your head.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems - Depression and Suicide Poems

Am I Alone?
I get a funny feeling,
it comes from deep inside.
I get all mad and angry,
wanting to go and hide.

My doctor calls it depression,
my dad says it's just me.
But the thoughts and feelings,
no one will ever be able to see.

Some say I'm psycho,
some say I'm just weird.
It's like I'm a different person,
and the old me just disappeared.

I get really edgy,
I want to commit suicide real bad.
Then I get a headache,
followed by feeling sad.

I wish I could get help,
I wish it would go away.
Maybe if I keep praying real hard,
it will some day.

    you definitely are not alone! I was diagnosed with bipolar, borderline personality disorder, and maybe schizo-effective. Anyhow i just wanted you to know that i can relate to your poem 100% and feel like i don't really belong anywhere in this world because i'm different. i really appreciate your poem it reminds me to practice what i preach and gives me strength and inspiration to put my own words out there, so that i too can inspire others to do the same, and recieve positive feedback, thanks for making my day a little brighter! my name is collette from Eugene, Oregon

    I thought that this poem really does show what people or kids are feeling when they are suffering from depression, if kids parents read this and they had a depressed kid it could help them understand a little better, mums and dads do think that it's just kids being them but it's not it can become such a serious problem. this poem is really something and i love it!
