depression is not beautiful

Grace Lazarro tackles the romanticisation of mental health in this week's Poembox submission

They say depression is beautiful 

Just an innocent kid

Shattering at the wrist

It is something to look at

With the eye of an artist

But not one who suffers

Would call it beautiful 

Nor just a mere shattering of the wrist

It’s a fragmentation of self

It’s not crying for weeks

Because what would be the point 

It’s falling to the ground

In the middle of the day

Your mouth ajar

Yet not making a sound 

Depression is not beautiful

Nor a farce

It’s a disease of the mind

That ruins every part
