(1904 - 1967 / County Monaghan)

Depression Is When

depression is when you hate everyone around
depression is when you don't want to make a sound
depression is when all you want to do is cry
depression is when you feel like you’re dying inside
depression is when your thoughts wonder all the time
depression is when you can't sleep even though you’re tired
depression is when you don't want to go on
depression is when you can't stop shaking outside
depression is when you hide who you are
depression is when you put on a mask to hide what you feel
depression is when you feel weak all the time
depression is when you give in to everything around
depression is when you don't care what happens anymore


depression is just another day in my life

I love you b for LOVE
This poem should be read by a male voice which would express feeling & meaning to the poem.
Surely Kavanagh's poetry deserves a more appropriate voice with, at least, SOME feeling for the meaning of his poetry. Terrible. voice dropping the last word on each line.
Nice beautiful words and rhythm
