“You’re just sad.”
“Suck it up.”
And the worst?
“Get over it.”

I’m not just sad. I suffer from depression
Waiting for happiness’s resurrection.
I can’t just forget it, it’s in me for good
I can’t do the things that I know I should.
I’m not just sad. I’m broken. I’m lost.
I’ve tried everything to fix it, no matter the cost.
I’ve carried a blade just to hold to my wrist.
I’ve carried a dream inside of my fist.
I’ve talked about it, like they say I should do
But all my efforts are stopped by ignorant people like you.

“You’re just sad.”
“Suck it up.”

And the worst?

“Get over it.”
Depression is not a choice.
I'm not complaining here. Don't freak out on me =P I'm just saying, it's not a choice, and people should really be more aware of that.
Comments? :)

One time, while sitting in social studies, I heard someone comment "I don't get why people cut themselves. I would never do it." I mentally stood up and slapped her, yelling that you would never, ever understand until you went through what they did. In reality, I sat quietly, thinking about how ignorant people can really be. I wish I had said something to her, but I am a quiet introvert who doesn't like talking much :(

i can relate to this poem. alot of people keep telling me that i should just get over a break-up, there's plenty of fish in the sea,  depression is nothing compared to what other people are going through in third world country, and blah...blah...blah... 
nobody really knows what this is like until something terrible happens to them.

So true. Final stanza was the best part.

The words 'Get over it' piss me off to no limits. I'm not depressed myself, but if I could just 'get over it', I wouldn't be revisiting my psychologist, now would I?

Someone once snapped at me with this all because of how this person had reminded me of those bad times with my mom. She certainly wasn't any better to deal with, not when you have 2 people sharing a place with their own mental lapses.

Even though she's been gone, there's still the small shadow that haunts away and bitterness towards another for them not doing enough.

SERIOUSLY know what you mean, except for the cutting part.
Everybody saying "just get over it!!!" Ah, if only it were that easy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've tried and am still trying to be a happy uplifting person, but lately I feel depression coming on, and "get over it" hasn't done anything to help!! I know depression isn't a choice, and I sincerely wish you hope and the best with yours, if you do have depression.
Let's hope people can learn from this poem.
