When I was just a child
About twenty years back
I never would have thought
I would turn out like that
Or indeed like this
If I speak in the present tense
I guess I’m tense in the present
If that makes any sense

When I was at the mercy
Of the medical profession
They told me I was suffering
With clinical depression
And tapestries woven this tight
Into such an infant mind
Would be difficult to unspool
Unthread and leave behind

When I was just a boy
Around ten or so years back
I fell into a deep hole
But it felt more like a trap
I couldn’t get out of there
In fact I’m stuck here still
And all anyone can do
Is to prescribe another pill

It's nice to read artwork every now and then other than looking at it :)

Wow, the syllable flow and rhythm, and the rhyme of the whole thing, and the content, this is all really good.

D: I truly sympathize. and empathize. But don't ever give up on happiness, or your dreams. Hang in there; even while stuck in that place, I believe you can still carve out a small haven. Still, there'll always be days that suck bad. But that's all the more reason to cherish the good times... You're not alone in this :hug:

I know the frustrations: the doctor wasn't even interested in my complaints or changing the prescription: only upped the dosage, again and again and again. It cost me my job, my GPA, almost my marriage. Finding a support group who'd been through the same helped a great deal: they'll talk about their side effects more than the doctors acknowledged it, and helped me recognize what I could handle and what I couldn't. Even therapies vary greatly: talk therapy actually made me worse, but cognitive-behavioral therapy helped a lot, and now I can be part of that support group, saying, "this is how this one works, this is how this one works." And I dumped that doctor and found one who's willing to work with me.
