Here I Stand: Poem written by 14 year-old with Depression

May 26, 2011   //   by Shawna Figueira   //   Blog, Mental Health  //  No Comments

Here I stand, surrounded by darkness

Lost in the maze that is my mind

I see a faint light, which guides me further into the unknown

I do not look at the dark, for it would only blind me

And cause me to give in to myself

Rather, I focus on the dim light, and nothing else

The light is like a voice, calling to me

As I walk towards it, it seems to run away from me

But I know it will always be with me

The light is an angel, sent to protect me

From the demons that I created

The light guides me through the dark

And puts my mind at ease

I may sleep now, free of doubt
