Poetic summary of Depression by Dax

I'm trapped in a prison of my own mind
I can't escape the thoughts that haunt me all the time
I try to smile and act like I'm fine
But deep inside I'm dying, I can't lie

I have a hole in my heart that nothing can fill
I have a voice in my head that tells me I'm worthless and ill
I have a past that I can't forget and a future that I dread
I have a life that I don't want to live and a death that I fear

I'm tired of pretending that I'm okay
I'm tired of hiding my pain and suffering every day
I'm tired of fighting a battle that I can't win
I'm tired of living a nightmare that never ends

I need someone to help me, to understand me, to love me
I need someone to hold me, to heal me, to save me
I need someone to show me, to guide me, to lead me
I need someone to be there for me, to care for me, to be with me

I don't know who I am or what I'm supposed to do
I don't know where I belong or where I'm going to
I don't know why I'm here or what I'm meant for
I don't know how to cope or how to endure

I want to be happy, to be free, to be at peace
I want to be strong, to be brave, to be confident
I want to be hopeful, to be faithful, to be optimistic
I want to be myself, to be loved, to be accepted

I have depression, but it doesn't have me
I have a challenge, but it doesn't define me
I have a choice, but it doesn't limit me
I have a purpose, but it doesn't confine me
