TITLE: Who Me - Depressed?

Who Me, Depressed? - non fiction

Enclosed in the dismal confines of my room
Held captive to waves of doom and gloom
I could well say “they put me away.”
While the norm frolic in their lawless ways.

Just a minute – I need another cigarette

I’m entrapped as a beast in a zoo
Estranged by kin – that feeds the feud
Could you cradle that phone for one full minute?
Don’t fret! I’m not braced to get intimate.

Just a minute – I need another cigarette.

Branded an ‘untouchable’ by family and friends
As thoughts wander off to a land of pretend
The world appears to me – but a hinge and a lock
My earth’s flat end is fathomed by a block.

Just a minute – I need another cigarette.

Betrayed by societies most current needs
Are you certain I’ve sprouted from Adam’s seed?
They say it’s O.K. to be a glutton, selfish or boozer
Then why am I decreed a loser?

Just a minute – I need another cigarette.

When wealth or position are the measure of social standing
My room envelopes into a tomb – with standing
And when time turns into measured sand
At the risk of Divine reprimand…

May I acclimate my days with a Number 7 in hand?

I felt the MC's pain and inner struggles within this sobering piece.

Excellent writing.

God bless~

A beautifully written piece of work. Very creative and you ask a very important question. Great job.

I know there is much more meaning to your poetry than I my shallow mind is gleaning, because I've read it three times and keep coming back for more, and seeing something deeper. Love it.
