Destiny S. Harris


Today, I felt depressed

Today, I was overwhelmed with distress

I have nothing to be sad about

But I feel sad about everything

Depression is my best friend

But my best friend is happy

The pit in my stomach is deep

As I sip on my tea

I also let it seep

Just like my sadness seeps into me

The happy moments are soaked up quick

The sad moments are like wet towels that never dry

Oh, what the hell we’re all going to die

As I think on it, my soul once again dies

Into the ocean tide I slip and fly

As I stare into the mountains

I feel nothing
