After hearing about the extremely sad news of Robin Williams passing early this morning, it struck a chord with me personally. Depression has many levels and affects many many people in different ways. Some people cope…some…don’t. I was inspired to write a small piece of poetry in honour of an amazing man who brought so much, to so many.
Sometimes it’s a desperation, sometimes it’s a head full of lead.
Sometimes it’s a endless nightmare, sometimes you’d rather be dead.
Sometimes it’s a saddened heart, sometimes it’s a distorted mind.
Sometimes it’s a fear within you, sometimes it’s a daily grind.
Sometimes you just can’t explain it, sometimes it’s always there.
Sometimes you let it beat you, sometimes it isn’t fair.
But sometimes the days are lighter, sometimes the fog does clear
And sometimes the love of others reminds us why we’re still here.
