A Poem | Depression Unwinds

Depression Unwinds

A Poem | Samantha Steiner

Trying to stay positive

But at times it gets tough

Life just keeps giving me

One blow after another

How much am I honestly to take

I just can’t catch a break

I need to work on stopping these intrusive thoughts

Before they run rampid

Deep inside my mind

Where I harbor all of my mistakes

But there’s enough screw ups

To last three lifetimes

What will I do

When the hypomania begins to fade

And depression begins to unwind

We already know it’s only a matter of time
