It's about depression, Of how you feel inside, wanting to let it out. Needing & wanting to learn how to hold your thoughts captive. A letter to God.

The Cry Of Our Hearts
There is a great deal of depression that has overtaken my soul,
It floods deep within, into every inch that makes me whole.
I wonder and worry of thought throughout the day,
What is to come, to my dismay.
As a flood of tears pour out of me in all my expressions,
more and more comes, more and more depression.

I assure myself everything is ok!
But who am I fooling?
Then I burst into a spirit of rage.
I have questions, and there are answers.
But I'm afraid and much too weak,
When I try to explain,
I hear I'm hearing wrong and need to be meek.
But this is how I feel, there's no wrong or right,
But as I battle with myself, I always lose the fight.

I feel intimidated sometimes by others,
But as I said "This is how I feel"
The pain in me is very real.
I lose control, my thought go wild,
and here I am only a child.
If only you knew what I thought,
If only you knew what I fought.
I need my thoughts held captive.

Oh God, assure me I'm thinking normal
and you'll help me think positive.
I'm hurting, I need you!
Please don't give up on me!
One day I will always make you smile!
Your Child

    I liked this poem so much, i swear i suffer from depression but no one see's the pain deep inside no one really tries to see if there is i think, everyday its a struggle, not so much anymore but its still there, the only reason why im a little better is cause i found someone who saw the pain someone who actually cares my love. Your poem is something that i will always remember.
