I have always been fascinated by poetry and yet never tried to write it. Encouraged by some of the excellent poets in my Facebook Group. I thought it was time to try.
With this thought in mind, I embarked on the task of learning how to write poetry. I searched every available source and found nothing that would help.
I then realised that poetry can be anything that you want. It doesn’t have to fit a format or style, it is a complete expression of feeling.
So here is my first attempt at poetry.
A Friend of Depression
This is a story about living with depression.
Yet this is not a story about living with depression.
It is not me that lives with depression.
Yet it is me that lives with depression.
Depression does not affect me daily.
Yet depression does affect me daily.
I am not the one who struggles with depression.
Yet I am the one who struggles with depression.
Depression is not mine it is my partners.
Yet depression is mine it is my partners.
