Sad Poem

I wrote this on one of my bad days. I suppose I should be happy with my life but I just get depressed sometimes. I'm only 13 and people say its part of growing up, I wish I'd grow up faster. Sorry for the fourth line if I offend anyone.

In A Place Called Depression

© Anonymous
Depression is not just sadness
Its an emotion of lonely and inner madness
It gives you thoughts of pain and loss
That other people don't give a toss
It makes you lash out at friends you love
It makes you question the Lord above
Why did he give me this terrible emotion?
That has no cure or potion
Depression will lock you in
In a small and empty tin
It controls ever action and every thought
And puts your fuse to naught
It makes you scared and all alone
Talking with a silent deadly tone
